The United States hasn't seen a total solar eclipse since 1979, and Columbia, SC will be a prime location to see the upcoming eclipse on August 21, 2017. Columbia will experience 2 minutes and 36 seconds of totality, one of the longest amounts in the nation for seeing the sun completely eclipsed.
Join us for the Total Eclipse Tailgate at the South Carolina State Fair with WLTX! As one of only a few places with an unobstructed view of the Eclipse, the fairgrounds is the place to be. So, come tailgate at the fairgrounds for this historic event! Not to mention, we will also have:
• Prepaid Parking - Pay ahead of time and guarantee yourself a spot.
• Food Concessions
• Indoor Restrooms
A limited number of eclipse-safe viewing "glasses" have been made available to the event by the City of Columbia. Pick yours up at the booths in front of the WLTX stage. Limit 2 per person.
Remember! Safety First! Please check out these safe viewing instructions.
A limited number of parking spots will be available for purchase at the ENTRY gates the day of the event. For more information contact Kyle Gustafson @ 803-851-4618
