Thank you to everyone who came to Alliance to celebrate the Solar Eclipse with us. It was an amazing time to make new friends from all over the world and share our community.

You, our Visitor, left Alliance and it’s citizens better.
Please come visit us again!

It took the work of many, many volunteers to make it all happen in such a wonderful way. Thanks to all the citizens of Alliance for welcoming the thousands of people to Alliance, we truly are “Building the Best Hometown in America”

Carhenge Corona

We shared a 360 video of the solar eclipse in Beatrice, Nebraska earlier, but now we can share one that was made at Carhenge – Friends of Carhenge!! Have you ever seen a 360-degree sunset? It is only possible if you are in a wide open space and the path of totality during a total solar eclipse. Experience #Eclipse2017 at the Carhenge, outside of Alliance, Nebraska.
