Enjoying the view of the moon from the Deering Estate front lawn is a magical experience. Bring your binoculars or telescope (BYOT), pack a picnic and chairs, blankets, and enjoy a relaxing evening with family and friends. Picnic tables are available on a first come, first serve basis in the Royal Palm Grove. Guests are encouraged to bring battery operated lantern or flashlight (flames/candles not permitted). While the breezes from the bay are common, bugs and mosquitos are still possible; please come prepared (loose, long-sleeve shirt and pants suggested, bug repellant). Museums are closed for this event.
