Purdue University is hosting a series of events today through Saturday to commemorate when Purdue alumnus Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon July 20, 1969. The events include an airing of “Armstrong,” a space author meet and greet, food vendors and K-12 STEM activities.
A special Purdue video also will also air this weekend on NASA TV and online.
Because of Saturday’s projected high temperatures, water stations will be near Neil Armstrong Hall, Elliott Hall of Music and Stewart Center. Food trucks also will be selling beverages. Neil Armstrong Hall will be open throughout the day for people to come inside and cool down in the air conditioning.
The Northwestern Avenue and University Street parking garages are free and open to the public on weekends and after 5 p.m. on weekdays. The Grant Street garage is paid parking at all times.
