Watch the Perseid Meteor Shower at CAC

Join the volunteers of the Calumet Astronomical Society on Aug 12 at 8:30p to watch the most famous of all meteor showers provide an impressive display of “shooting stars”. While visible to the human eye from many places, Conway provides not only a “dark” sky, but knowledgeable, helpful and friendly astronomers who are happy to provide a wealth of information.

Bellaboo's Play and Discovery Center

Anyone who has raised a child, watched a child, or remembers being a child knows that children PLAY - and through play they learn. That's why Bellaboo's is designed for children ages 9 and younger. Click the photo for details about Bellaboo's many fun activities.
