Set your eyes to the sky to view the summer spectacular meteor shower at this fund raising event. Enjoy Rapscallion’s beer tasting, or homemade root beer and Polar beverages for those under 21. Pretzels and chips are also included. The Perseids meteor shower will be at its peak between August 9 and 13, and since it is a new moon, viewing the shooting stars should be amazing! Start the evening with a Native American tale of how the stars got in the sky. Amateur Astronomers will bring a telescope to view Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or a myriad of deep sky objects.
Bring a 6-pack of friends to this fun fundraising event!
