It's been Eclipse Central around here for a few weeks and now the final countdown has begun! A majority of hotel rooms in Bowling Green/Warren County are booked, viewing events are in the final stages of planning, and last minute deals are being promoted. This total eclipse of the sun is shaping up to be a great addition to our late summer events calendar!
Many of our tourism partners are gearing up for viewing events at their locations and lots of folks are asking questions, so be sure to visit our Eclipse landing page for details, events, viewing locations, traffic information, and a list of who will have eclipse viewers available on Monday. Hint, if you want to make sure your gang is prepared, we have a good-sized supply available for purchase here at the CVB office at 352 Three Springs Road!
