Can't make it to Missouri or Illinois to view the total eclipse? Here in Flower Mound, we'll see a 75% eclipse, and what better place to experience it than on top of The Flower Mound? Sneak away for a long lunch and join us at the top of The Mound. We'll have certified solar sunglasses (the only way to safely view the eclipse) for sale for $4 each so you can watch all the action. The eclipse action starts at 11:40 a.m., peaks at 1:09 p.m., and is finished by 2:39 p.m.
We recommend closed-toes shoes for hiking through the prairie to the top of The Mound, and spray ankles, legs, and waistband area well with bug spray to ward off any late-season chiggers.
