The first thing I noticed when entering the park was a long line of people who I learned were in line to pick up glasses for viewing the eclipse.
The crowd extended from the pond to the field near the day care center.
There were refreshment stands and a band.
All in all, a festive atmosphere. It was strange seeing all those people in an area that I walk through everyday. Some of those days, especially the cold ones, I'm the only person there.
