When the sun goes down the fun doesn’t stop! There are great family fun events happening around the Bluegrass even after dark.
These aren’t your everyday telescopes. The Bluegrass Amateur Astronomers Club in Lexington brings out some SERIOUS telescopes. You can spend as long as you’d like at this FREE event held throughout the year. Some evenings it’s earlier depending on sunset so you could even take younger kids out and not be too late for bedtime. View stars, planets, nebulae, the ISS traveling overhead, and more!
Fireworks and Baseball
This yearly event held each spring at Raven Run is a neat way to spy the elusive Woodcock. Males perform a remarkable “sky dance” on spring and summer nights, in a high, twisting flight, with chippering, twittering, bubbling sounds. (https://www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/american-woodcock)
