For the first time since 1918, a total solar eclipse will pass over the transcontinental U.S. from coast to coast on Monday, August 21, 2017. Experience this once-in-a-lifetime event as the path of the eclipse slices through Kansas. Join us as Johnson County Parks and Rec with local organizations, including Visit Shawnee, will host a Total Eclipse in the Parks event at three parks from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and purchase a lunch from local food trucks. Join us in Shawnee at Theatre in the Park, 7710 Renner Road.  Note: It is important that you have proper eye protection to view the eclipse. 200 pairs of glasses will be available (one per person) at each park location on a first-come, first-serve basis
