Solar Eclipse Organizers Announce Partnership with Palaroo

Free app to offer maps, event information and schedules of Eclipseville activities

The City of Hopkinsville has partnered with Palaroo to provide Solar Eclipse information to visitors and residents at the touch of a button. Palaroo, a free smart phone app, is currently available for download, and will provide users access to the latest information about happenings in #Eclipseville.

Upon initial download, Palaroo users can search for “Hopkinsville Solar Eclipse 2017” and “star” the event to easily access it in the future. Users will find a variety of features at their fingertips, including a link to the website, map of all the events taking place in Christian County, a search feature, alerts from event organizers, directions to the festivities and a schedule of events over the course of Eclipse weekend.

“We are so excited to offer this incredible app to all of our residents and visitors for free,” said Brooke Jung, Solar Eclipse Marketing and Events Consultant. “This platform will allow guests to plan their itinerary, find their next meal, navigate the path to their next destination and explore all of Christian County with the touch of a button.”

By clicking on the Palaroo map feature, users can view the different locations of events taking place throughout the community, as well as the eclipse’s path of totality through Christian County. Simply tapping on Hopkinsville Solar Eclipse 2017 will bring up a new menu with specifics about the particular event, including schedule of events, activities and pertinent information.

Business owners interested in generating an upgraded listing on the app can do so for $75.  This listing will feature a unique logo or custom icon of the business’ choosing on the Hopkinsville Solar Eclipse 2017 event map so that attendees can easily recognize and find them in the app.  Businesses can also include specific information about their hours, specials or promotions they have taking place.

There is also an opportunity to create scheduled notifications. Vendors and sponsors can create three customized notifications that will be pushed to event attendees who have notifications enabled on their phone.  This can be used to communicate directly with guests, informing them about sales or special promotions running during the event.
