Spooktacular Saturday
October 26, 2013
Exploding pumpkins!  Spooky science! Scary bugs!

Animal Embassy
Come enjoy storytelling and a book signing of "A Friendly Ghost Tale" by children's author Karen Hall of Acting Out with Ms. Karen. Discover creatures from Animal Embassy from Stamford Museum & Nature Center, and check out scary-good Halloween treats available for purchase from Stef’s Confections.

Face painting, make-and-takes, and spooky stuff for kids. Join the
Parade of Costumes (children in costume will receive a free Goblin Glow Wristlet while supplies last) and be amazed by scary science in the Mad Scientist Demonstration.

See if you’re brave enough to eat a bug in Jello! National Geographic says, “
If you think eating insects is gross, you may be in the cultural minority. Throughout history, people have relished insects as food. Today, many cultures still do.”

If you’re not into bugs, there’s great food available from Marlon The Baker’s food truck.

And – of course – there are planetarium shows and all of our hands-on exhibits to discover.

Otherwise full price: $9.50 adults; $8 seniors and students with ID; children under 3 Free.
