Looks like a fun event! I would love to be there some year over the Solstice.

You know 1stimestar I heard there are places in the northern hemisphere where it gets dark during the Solstice! What a waste of a good summer that would be. Oh and enjoy your trip to the El Dorado Gold Mine souvenir shop, have a cookie for me.

I gave the tickets to my female Flash and male Wonder Woman who is also a couple. I figured he deserved it lol. My one and only trip back south since I've been here I felt weird with it being warm and dark at the same time. When discussing a trip down south with my 9 year old daughter (to visit her dad) I had to explain to her that it actually got dark at night. That was fun. She's been here since she was 2 so has no real concept of that.
