Blackout on Billy Dreher Solar Eclipse Event

Dreher Island State Park will be hosting the “Blackout on Billy Dreher” solar eclipse event on August 21, 2017. Due to the limited amount of space and significance of the solar eclipse event, Dreher Island will be selling event tickets. Ticket sales will begin at the end of June and conclude by July 31. The commemorative tickets are $30 per person, which will include the admission to the park and guarantees a place to park your vehicle. Guest who purchase an event ticket will also receive a complementary gift package. The “Blackout Package” includes a reusable Dreher Island grocery tote, the commemorative “Blackout” t-shirt, solar eclipse Mason jar cup, protective eyewear to view the eclipse, and an “I was there” sticker. Guest can purchase tickets online or at the Dreher Island State Park tackle shop and order their t-shirt size at the time of purchase. The “Blackout Package” will be available for pick up the day of the solar eclipse event. Activities for the day will begin at the Dreher Island Tournament shelter located on the second island and across the road from the tackle shop. The event will begin at 10:00 AM leading up to the solar eclipse event planned to occur at 2:40 PM. Activities will include an arts and crafts table for children, food and beverages, and an eclipse presentation at 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM. We will give away door prizes during the event and guest must be present to claim their prize. Kayak rentals through Hat Creek Adventure and Paddle South Outfitters will take place at the old Dreher Island office building. Daily admission for those who do not purchase the “Blackout” event ticket will be $5.00 for adults, $3.25 for SC seniors and disabled, $3.00 for children 6-15 years old, and children 5 and under are free. Daily admission for the park is first come first served and gates will close when the park has reached capacity. For ticket and event details please contact Dreher Island State Park directly.
