IRVING, Texas, April 3, 2024 ~ Irving, Texas - On April 8, 2024, the city of Irving will host a viewing event for the Great North American Eclipse that is set to be unlike any other. The event, called "Total Eclipse in the Park," will take place at Levy Event Plaza and promises not only four minutes of totality but also a taste of the World's Largest Moon Pie.

The massive Moon Pie, weighing between 150-180 pounds and measuring five feet in diameter by four inches thick, was created by Executive Chef Eduardo Alvarez of the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas (ICC). With guidance from ICC General Manager Tom Meehan, Chef Alvarez and his team crafted this one-of-a-kind treat that will be served during the eclipse viewing event.

Meehan shared his excitement about the unique addition to the event, stating, "For a once-in-a-lifetime event, we wanted to do something out-of-the ordinary. When I brought the idea to our chef, he shook his head and said 'Never in my career did I think I'd do something like this.'"
