Music City prepares for galactic eclipse party

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) –

The countdown is on.

We’re less than two days away from the celestial dance in the sky. The Great American Eclipse, and Music City is ramping up its festivities.

On Monday, dozens of tents, vendors and food trucks are going to be on hand. As well as, the largest virtual reality experience in Nashville.

Derrick Rohl with Adventure Science Center said, “This could be, and in most accounts will be the biggest astronomical event our country has ever experienced. We’ve been preparing for this for years here at the science center.”
