Celebrate 50th Anniversary of Moon Landing with St. Charles County Parks

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Landing, the St. Charles County Parks Department is hosting a late-night retro moon party at the Astronomy Viewing Area in Broemmelsiek Park, 1615 Schwede Road in Wentzville. Dig out your favorite 60s attire and celebrate with us from 8:30 p.m. to midnight, Saturday, July 20! 


Members of the Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri (ASEM) are sponsoring the program and will commemorate this historic event by showing guests images of the moon, Jupiter and other constellations through high-powered telescopes. Iconic footage of the moon landing and the Apollo mission seen around the world will be shown on a big screen. Music from the 60s will be played throughout the night. The participant wearing the best 60s apparel will be awarded a prize by ASEM event judges.
