The week of Aug. 21, 2017 should be an exciting time as not only is a total solar eclipse scheduled to occur, but a Grammy-nominated Country duo is also coming to Idaho Falls.

The city of Idaho Falls has been designated an “Offical NASA Observation Site” for the eclipse, which on average only takes place every 375 years in any one location on earth.

The Grammy-nominated “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” Brothers Osborn will also be performing Saturday, Aug. 19. A limited amount of tickets will be for sale early and can be purchased for $25. Tickets are $30 for seating and $35 for standing room only.

In order to provide enough space for viewing the eclipse, the city of Idaho Falls has designated four parks – Old Butte Soccer Complex, Freeman Park, Community Park and Tautphaus Park – as viewing areas and are free to the public.

Sandy Downs, Noise Park and South Tourist Park will also be designated camping grounds during the eclipse weekend. Only South Tourist Park will remain a pay-to-stay campground after the weekend.
