Next Star Party

September 30th & October 1st

Head out to GMARS for our first autumn star party of the year! Autumn in Landers also means it's time for the Morongo Basin Orchid Festival at Gubler Orchids, which is just 1.5 miles from GMARS! Check out the beautiful flowers by day (Saturday and Sunday) and the beautiful skies by night!

GMARS star parties start on Friday afternoon/evening and go through Sunday morning. Be sure to join us Saturday evening for our Star-B-Q! Get more info by clicking the link below.
