Edgewater Mall giving out free eclipse glasses
With all the fakes floating around the internet, you’ll want to make sure to get proper, NASA approved, eye protection for the solar eclipse. If you’re wondering where you can find them on the Coast head on over to Edgewater Mall Friday for a free pair.
The mall in Biloxi has 2,000 ISO certified glasses to give away starting at noon Friday. You can pick up the glasses at Chandeleur Outfitters, Popcorn Plus, My Kind of Place, GNC, Play Live Nation, Bella Rose, Claire’s, Traditional Jewelers, Sunglass World, and Chick-Fil-A.
All you have to do is walk into any one of those stores and ask for a pair. Edgewater Mall General Manager Terry Powell said, “1979 is the last time this happened and I don’t even know the next time it’s going to happen. It’s probably going to be quite some time before we see it again so it’s really a neat thing and a little different so we thought it would be a great idea to do and create some traffic in the mall.”
If you choose to watch the eclipse from the comfort of your own home you can tune in to catch a live broadcast of the solar eclipse next Monday at WXXV25.com/2017/08/14/eclipse-2017.
