St. Clair Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of St. Clair will be hosting "Get Your Eclipse on Route 66" August 18-21 at various locations around St. Clair. Admission is free and open to everyone.
St. Clair is just off I-44 in Franklin County. The midline of the eclipse goes through town, for just over two minutes and 40 seconds of totality, one of the longest times along the path.
Friday, August 18: our event will open at 6 p.m. with a parade on Main Street and an Eclipse Movie in Orchard Park.
Saturday, August 19: our Route 66 Bluegrass Festival will kick off at 8 a.m. and continue all day in Orchard Park. Music, food and drink vendors, and an old time craft fair will be on site. The Bluegrass Festival will go until 11 p.m. Please bring your own chair and/or blanket for seating. The Festival is sponsored by St. Clair JumpStart. https://www.facebook.com/jumpstartstclairmo/ for more information.
Sunday, August 20: rev down Main Street starting at 9 a.m. with the first annual Route 66 Car Show. We will post more information as it is available. Persons interested in showing cars should contact Tim Davis at Certified Collision and Service Center 636-629-3600.
On Eclipse Day, Monday, August 21: several viewing stations will be set up around town, with solar ambassadors to answer questions and help people safely view the eclipse. We hope to have a live digital feed set up in case of heavy clouds, and several local fraternal and service organizations will provide food, drinks and after eclipse activities and meals.
