HARTFORD — The final Twilight Thursday is set for 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower.
Admission during Twilight Thursday is $5 per person, which includes unlimited trips up to the 180-foot tower’s three viewing platforms at 50, 100 and 150 feet. Visitors are encouraged to bring cameras and binoculars for viewing.
Visitors will be able to view a fall sunset over the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. Guests should check the times of the sunset to plan their trip.
“The view of the sunset from the top of the tower is breathtaking,” said Don Russell, longtime volunteer at the tower. “It’s the greatest place to be if you want to sit back and enjoy the view unfold in front of you. Visitors can make memories they’ll never want to forget.”
The tower is now open five days a week: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Guided daily tours are available throughout the day. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for adults 62 and older, active military and military veterans, $4 for children 12 and younger and children 2 and younger are free. Group rates are available for 12 or more people and reservations can be made by calling the Alton Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau at (618) 465-6676.
Fall events are sponsored by Phillips 66.
