Concert at the Park featuring Shoot’n the Breeze
August 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The Friends of Tettegouche State Park are hosting three concerts this summer at Tettegouche. This second concert features very talented local musicians who, collectively, call themselves Shootin” the Breeze. They play an eclectic mix of American Songbook, County and Texas/Western Swing. There will be a campfire and free s’mores in the outdoor fireplace behind the Visitor Center from 6 – 6:45 pm. Concert begins at 7 pm.
Following the concert will be an outdoor stargazing program, UNIVERSE IN THE PARK.
Universe in the Park is a free summer stargazing program that takes place in state and local parks throughout Minnesota. At each event, audiences will be taken on a guided telescope tour led by astronomers from the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics. The night begins at 8:45pm with a short outdoor talk on a space-related topic, ranging from astronomical history to modern breakthroughs in research. Afterwards, we’ll set up our portable telescopes, and attendees can get close-up views of targets like Saturn and Jupiter, the remnants of stellar explosions, or even distant galaxies. We hope you can join us as we explore science under the stars.
