Eclipse Viewing Event at TSE

Eclipse Monday April 8 1

On the afternoon of Monday, April 8, our area will be in the direct position to witness a celestial spectacle — the Total Solar Eclipse! The Town of Gates is planning an eclipse celebration from 1 – 5 pm at Total Sports Experience, 880 Elmgrove Road.

An estimated 375,000 visitors will descend upon the Rochester area to enjoy the solar eclipse, and the Town is providing residents and tourists with an opportunity to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Join us for area food trucks; Monster Hots, Wraps on Wheels, Kona Ice and Traveling Tom Coffee, Entertainment by DJ Mike Hughes, various children’s activities and plenty of photo opportunities.

There will be parking at Rochester Tech Park and patrons will be bussed over to TSE. Be sure to bring blankets and chairs, and your eclipse glasses if you have them already. We still have many to give away the day of the event. Remember, they are needed for looking directly at the sun. You can take them off during totality. If the sun is out, we can watch the gradual eclipsing, and if it is cloudy we’ll experience a sudden darkness. Either way, the eclipse will be stunning and your moment experiencing it will become a cherished memory. We are excited to be sharing with you!
