The upcoming total solar eclipse on Aug. 21 has become one of the world’s hottest tickets in 2017, with Hastings among the cities holding front-row tickets for the event.

Adams County Convention and Visitors Bureau executive director Kayla Nelson said the rare North American astronomical phenomenon is expected to attract between 116,000 to 466,000 visitors to Nebraska to witness the spectacle, generating upwards of $30 million in revenue over a three-day period based on conservative estimates released by Nebraska Tourism Commission.
