October is Hill Country Night Sky Month

 

Hill Country Night Sky Month is a celebration of one of our region’s most dazzling features — the star-filled night sky — and a time to recognize the many ways Hill Country communities are working to preserve it.

October 17th: Lights Out Boerne

On the night of the New Moon, we are encouraging everyone to turn off their outdoor lights and enjoy the wonders of a star filled sky!

As an added bonus, all across Boerne, restaurants will help celebrate by having “dinners by candlelight/starlight” for all of those who seek a wonderful date night under the stars.  A list of participating restaurants will be available on our Facebook event.

Available One Night Only!
