Free and open to the public, this fun, family-focused community event will be held on the Hutchinson Community College (HCC) lawn and is in conjunction with HCC and Hutch Rec.

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing with hands-on, Moon and space-themed activities from various community organizations and live science demonstrations from Cosmosphere Science Educators.  Food and adult beverages will be available for purchase from a number of local food truck vendors.  Stay after dark and enjoy a showing of the 1969 CBS footage of the Moon landing, followed by an Apollo 11 documentary on an outdoor screen. To wrap up the event, Cosmosphere Science Educators will host a Moon and planet observing, using a giant 16” diameter telescope.

Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and bug spray, and don't forget to wear your favorite attire from 1969!

More exciting details coming soon!
