    Star Party

    "Don't be left in the dark" American West Heritage Center staff tout as they prepare for their 5th annual Star Party. The Star Party takes place during the week of the Perseid Meteor shower, traditionally one of the showiest showers of the year.

    "Don't be left in the dark" American West Heritage Center staff tout as they prepare for their 5th annual Star Party. The Star Party takes place during the week of the Perseid Meteor shower, traditionally one of the showiest showers of the year. Visitors can expect many of the popular activities to be back such as the Glow-in-the-Dark Tea Party, pony rides, train rides, and the Starry Navigation Treasure Hunt.

    "The Starry Navigation Treasure Hunt is a bit of a misnomer," indicated Nelda Ault, Education Director. "The pioneers, mountain men, and even the Indians didn't really use the stars to navigate much--except for the North Star. But this has always been a fun event that gets into our history in a fun way." This year, the Treasure Hunt will explore the stars on the American Flag through history as participants navigate around the Heritage Center grounds by lantern light.

    The Glow-in-the-Dark Tea Party requires reservations and an additional charge of $3.50 to cover the cost of the treat, which staff assure will be generous. The Tea Party also includes games and activities, all in a glow-in-the-dark environment. Other activities include Pioneer Night Games, night time wagon rides, crafts, and more.

    Also featured at the event will be the traditional sky watching through telescopes. In fact, guests who bring a telescope to share are given free admission to the event for themselves and an assistant. Along with the sky watching will be Star Stories, featuring storyteller Olan Mikkelsen, known in Utah as a lively, fun storyteller. Special presentations will also be given by guests ATK, Cache Starhouse, and others.

    Tickets are $6 per person; group discounts are available. For more information or to make reservations for the Glow-in-the-Dark Tea Party, call the Heritage Center: (435) 245-6050. You an also visit their website for a schedule of activities for the event: www.awhc.org
