BROWNINGTON — The Old Stone House Museum & Historic Village is inviting everyone to come out and learn astronomy under the late summer night sky this Sunday, September 4, at 5:00 p.m. on historic Prospect Hill.
This unique end-of-summer event features live music, a beer garden, food, and astronomy with Bobby Farlice-Rubio as well as children’s games and a story hour.
The evening will kick-off at 5:00 p.m. with live music from Evansville Transit Authority, beers from Hill Farmstead Brewery and Whirligig Brewing for adults over 21-years-old, and food from The Runaway Tomato and The Ladies Aid Society of Brownington.
Then local children’s author Tanya Sousa, who wrote Tossing Stars, will host story time at 7:00 p.m.
At dusk, Bobby will lead the procession up Prospect Hill to begin the Stars Party with telescopes on-hand to explore the cosmos.
“This is a one-of-a-kind event,” Kristal Wood, the museum’s Associate Director of Public Events, said. “The whole family can find something to enjoy, plus sitting on Prospect Hill as the sun sets and music plays is something you won’t want to miss.”
Early bird tickets are on sale now at $5 for all ages above 5-years-old.
On the day of the event, tickets cost $10 for all ages and are FREE for children under 5-years-old.
Old Stone House Museum & Historic Village members are half-price no matter when you buy.
You are encouraged to bring your own picnic blanket or lawn chair to sit on for the event.
“This is my favorite event of the year at our museum,” Molly Veysey, the museum’s Executive Director, said. “It’s really just special to end the summer together as a family. There’s always magic in the air in the late summer.”
The Twilight Stars Party is made possible by generous support from Community National Bank, Hill Farmstead Brewery, and Whirligig Brewing.
