Celebrate Michigan's night sky with us in hopes of viewing the Perseid meteor showers. At 9:30 p.m. our explorer guide will talk about the night sky as you snack on s'mores. The program will take place in the day-use area in our pavilion. After the educational program and s'mores, you can stroll down to our beach for self-guided viewing. This event is weather dependent and will be rescheduled to Aug. 13, 2020 in case of clouds and/or rain. Stay up to date on park happenings and events by following us on Facebook @VanRiperSP
