Chasing the Eclipse: What's in Store for Milton on April 8th?

Has anyone in Milton figured out their plans for April 8th yet? It looks like most schools will be closed that day due to a partial solar eclipse. In Milton, we won't experience a "Total" Solar Eclipse, just a partial one since we're right outside the path. This is a rare event, and it's the first chance to witness a total eclipse in over 45 years – likely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many.

We were thinking about heading out early in the day to a small town near Niagara Falls. Maybe grab lunch there and simply watch the eclipse from a parking lot, making sure to use protective eyewear.

Although a small part of Oakville and most of Hamilton will be in the eclipse's path, it's only for a brief period since they're on the edges. It's a bit disappointing that Milton is just outside the trajectory; it would have been nice to stay home and witness a total eclipse.
