Star Party set at Evergreen Park on Friday evening

The Huntington Parks and Recreation Department will hold a Star Party at Evergreen Park on the evening of Aug. 23, weather permitting. The program will begin at sundown at 9 p.m.

Held in partnership with the Fort Wayne Astronomical Society, several telescopes will be provided to give attendees an opportunity to view the stars, with members of the Astronomical Society providing assistance.

The event is recommended for ages 8 and up, but younger children may attend as well. All children must remain in the presence of an adult at all times due to the sensitive nature of the equipment.

For more information, call Huntington Parks and Recreation at 358-2323 ext. 2502. If there is a weather cancelation, it will be announced on the department’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/HuntingtonParks.
