RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — The Riverton Chamber of Commerce has responded to about 3,800 requests for visitor information through March of this year. And many of the inquires involve the solar eclipse.

Chamber executive director Jim Davis says “not a day goes by” without a phone call to the chamber inquiring about local celebrations and events for the Aug. 21 solar eclipse.

The Riverton chamber is collaborating with other local agencies and groups who are promoting the Wind River Eclipse in hopes of making Fremont County a tourist destination. The event is expected to bring as many as 10,000 visitors to the area.

Crowheart, Pavillion, Riverton and Shoshoni will all experience the total eclipse for at least 140 seconds.
