In my neck of the woods, we will be attending Earth Hour in Harmony, Florida. It's such a blast!

With millions turning their lights off in Osceola county at 8:00 p.m., in Harmony, folks are encouraged to attend a community movie or candlelit dinner at Greensides' restaurant. Earth Hour also kicks off National Dark Sky Week, from March 29 to April 4, which ends the day before the 5th Annual Dark Sky Festival at Harmony begins. That festival on Saturday, April 5th, we close off the annual Dark Sky Week Festival with events such as viewing the night skies through several telescopes while enjoying music and food, specialty booths, meeting astronomers and scientists, or playing in the Cosmic Kids Zone.

The festivities kick off at 7 pm by the Silver Clouds Community Orchestra and then we get a real treat - a concert by RARE EARTH ("Get Ready", "I Just Want To Celebrate") performing a special concert as part of the celebration. Dancing in the street! I can't wait!
