Totally Toccoa- 2017 Solar Eclipse

 

Main Street Toccoa will be celebrating the 2017 Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017 with a very special event, Totally Toccoa.

Totally Toccoa will showcase one of the only total solar eclipses in America in the last 40 years. 1979 featured a total solar eclipse in the Northwestern states and 1991 featured a total solar eclipse in Hawaii.

Coming to Totally Toccoa means that you will be one of the few people able to see a total solar eclipse in decades. While several areas surrounding Toccoa will feature what is known as a partial solar eclipse, Toccoa is one of the few places in the United States where a total solar eclipse will occur.

The partial solar eclipse will occur at 1:07pm in Toccoa. Totality will occur at 2:36pm and is expected to last 1 minute and 59 seconds. 

The Totally Toccoa street party will take place in Historic Downtown Toccoa on August 21, 2017 from 12pm - 3pm in the First Citizens parking lot across from the Ritz Theatre. We will have food, live music, and giveaways, including safety glasses which will be provided to everyone! We will also be live-streaming the NASA presentation inside the Historic Ritz Theatre. Plan to come for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
