Join local astronomy experts from the Ford Amateur Astronomy Club for one of nature's greatest "light" shows: the Perseid meteor shower. Sit under the night sky to view this annual display of "falling stars" while you enjoy s'mores provided by the park. Items to bring with you include blankets, lawn chairs and bug spray. Only red lens flashlights are permitted during this event. The event will be canceled if rain or severe weather is forcasted. In the chance of overcast skies a brief educational program regarding meteors will be presented and s'mores will be served. Meet at Spring Mill Pond. For more information, call the park.

Note: Although the program occurs from 7-11p.m. the park will stay open late to allow additional time for viewing.
