Put your eyes to the skies at Silver Bell Hollow this Friday night!

Silver Bell Hollow (13111 311th St. W Illinois City) will be hosting an Eyes to The Skies Star Gazing Event this Friday Aug 3 from 6:30-9:30 p.m.

The evening will begin by creating a wet felted star wand, followed by a meet and greet with the alpacas!

Sticking with the celestial theme for Silver Bell Hollow’s breeding program, guests will vote on a name for their next cria (baby alpaca) due in September.

At 7:30 p.m. The Popular Astronomy Club of the Quad Cities will be joining for an educational presentation on the wonders of the night sky. Following the presentation, guests will head outside to explore the night sky using high powered telescopes!
