sunBLOCK Party

Date: Apr 08, 2024
Time: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

We’re going to have a "BLOCK" party and are closing down part of Mercer Street to create a fun and safe gathering place to watch the Eclipse! We’ll have music, food, eclipse-related vendors and more! Visitors can shop at Mercer Street stores, listen to music, see demonstrations and more!

A total solar eclipse happens when the moon is closest to the Earth and is directly between the earth and the sun. A total solar eclipse happens somewhere in the world every 18-months, but it only happens in the same place approximately every 375 years. The last time our area experienced a total solar eclipse was in the 1800s.

The total solar eclipse will be a one-in-a-lifetime event and Dripping Springs will experience the event beginning at approximately 12:16pm on Monday, April 8, 2024. The full eclipse begins at 1:34pm and Dripping Springs will be in total darkness for 3 minutes, when the moon’s disk completely blocks the sun.
