50th anniversary of moon walk

An estimated 650 million people watched on television as Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk the moon, on July 20, 1969. A 10-day celebration is planned at Armstrong Air & Space Museum during the 50th anniversary of the famous Apollo 11 mission.

Festivities begin July 12 at the museum in Armstrong’s hometown of Wapakoneta. There will be selected events throughout the celebration, including presentations from astronauts, special NASA exhibits, a host of no-cost activities and even Star Wars characters to meet. There is a 1K and 5K race on July 20 and a live concert July 21.
