Venus-Jupiter Conjunction at Conway Observatory

Join the volunteers of the Calumet Astronomical Society on August 27 at 7:00 p.m. to explore the wonders of the universe. Simply speaking, a planetary conjunction is when two planets look close together. Astronomically, it's a bit more complicated. Learn a bit about the conjunction, or just enjoy the sky. You certainly don't have to be an astronomy expert to enjoy this family friendly, free event.

Get your Sleepy Hollow Tickets at Deep River Waterpark August 31st.
Tickets go on sale at 5pm, but line up early! They'll sell fast!

Bellaboo's Play and Discovery Center

Anyone who has raised a child, watched a child, or remembers being a child knows that children PLAY - and through play they learn. That's why Bellaboo's is designed for children ages 9 and younger. Click the photo for details about Bellaboo's many fun activities.
