HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) – The April 8, 2024 solar eclipse is less than 33 weeks away and many people throughout the Tri-State have already started planning their viewing parties. But for some, the experience will be much shorter than others.

Evansville’s Regional Eclipse Task Force met with small businesses on Tuesday at KC’s Marina Pointe to discuss how to prepare for thousands of visitors coming to the city.
