Eclipse Under the Mulberry Sky: A Celestial Celebration at Vine Prairie


As the celestial calendar marks a significant event this year, the City of Mulberry invites astronomy enthusiasts, nature lovers, and adventure seekers to witness the awe-inspiring solar eclipse happening on April 8th. This natural phenomenon, where the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow over our planet, offers a moment of wonder that brings together communities from far and wide.

Vine Prairie Park, nestled in the heart of Mulberry, is gearing up to be the premier destination for eclipse watchers. With its sprawling landscapes and clear skies, it provides the perfect backdrop for this rare astronomical event. To ensure an immersive experience, the City of Mulberry is excited to remind everyone that camping and RV spots are available at Vine Prairie for those wishing to connect with nature and the cosmos.

Understanding the significance of this event and to accommodate the expected influx of visitors, we have tailored our accommodation offerings with a special focus on providing a comfortable and memorable stay. Therefore, we are implementing a 5-day minimum rental requirement for all reservations and rentals of camping and RV spots during the week of the eclipse. This policy is designed to enhance the visitor experience, allowing ample time to explore the natural beauty of Vine Prairie Park, engage in various recreational activities, and, of course, prepare for the grand spectacle of the solar eclipse.

Whether you’re an experienced astronomer, a photography enthusiast aiming to capture the perfect shot of the eclipse, or simply looking for a unique getaway with family and friends, Vine Prairie Park offers the ideal setting.

As we prepare to host this celestial celebration, the City of Mulberry and its community look forward to welcoming visitors with open arms. We are committed to making the solar eclipse viewing at Vine Prairie Park an unforgettable experience, filled with wonder, discovery, and shared moments of amazement.

Mark your calendars, pack your telescopes, and join us under the Mulberry sky for a viewing experience of the solar eclipse that promises to be as enriching as it is spectacular. For more information on the available camping and RV spots, please call the City offices at 479-997-1321.

Together, let’s embrace the darkness, if only for a moment, and marvel at the beauty of the universe, reminding us of the extraordinary planet we call home. See you at Vine Prairie Park for a celebration that’s bound to be out of this world!
