Monday, April 8th 1-4 PM

Come gather with your fellow Northfielders to view the solar eclipse in 2 awesome locations:

1) Memorial Park: Come celebrate and view the eclipse at Memorial Park from 1-4 pm. We will have crafts for kids, a live DJ (thank you, Dex Rowe!), and food available from Good Measure’s food truck. The partial eclipse begins at 2:14 and totality will last between 10-30 seconds at 3:28 at Memorial Park. You can view the following map to figure out the length of totality for various precise locations throughout Northfield and beyond:

2) Want to get further out into nature to view the partial eclipse? Join the Conservation Commission/Town Forest Stewardship Committee for an eclipse viewing event at Cheney Meadow beginning at 1:30 pm. Park where parking is allowed in the neighborhoods below the forest and follow signs for the Upper Meadow. As Northfield is right on the edge of totality, Cheney Meadow will experience a partial eclipse rather than a total eclipse.
