Tourism officials plan to promote all local eclipse events

Local tourism officials are looking for your help to compile a complete calendar of events happening leading up to the April total solar eclipse.

Our area will be in the path of totality for the April 8th event, meaning the sun will be completely blocked out by the moon during the solar phenomena. Officials expects thousands of tourists to flock to communities along the path, more than doubling the normal population in the weekend leading up to the big event. Organizers of events are putting together many activities for both visitors and locals to take part in.

The Columbus Area Visitors Center is acting as the central clearinghouse for eclipse activities in Bartholomew County and the city. Erin Hawkins, spokeswoman for the visitors center, explains:

You can also get more safety information and other eclipse highlights on the visitors center page.
