We will be giving out solar glasses on Sanford Mall on Monday, Aug 21 starting at 1 p.m.
We will give one pair per person while supplies last.
Alternatives for viewing and sharing in the Solar Eclipse will be available all afternoon including our live stream from totality in Sylva, N.C. in Grandfather Ballroom.
