Add a little science to Halloween

Carnival > Free admission for children after 4 p.m.

The Santa Fe Children’s Museum announces its second annual Weird Science Carnival from 4-7 p.m. Oct. 31.
The event includes some traditional Halloween favorites such as a costume parade and games, but adds the twist of science to the day.
Last year, these clever scientists worked with children to create a “zombie attack” with zombies constructed from marshmallows and toothpicks. “The children had so much fun they didn’t even realize they were learning about science. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this year,” said Rachael Kissling, Director of Programming and Visitor Experience.
The event happens to fall on a Thursday, which means that all children get free admission after 4 p.m. as part of SFCM’s new initiative called “Try It” Thursday.
The carnival goes from 4 to 7 p.m. with free admission for all children and tickets for various carnival activities only $1 each.
Activities will include a bouncy house, entertainment, science games, a giant screen photo booth and a costume parade. All children participating in the costume parade will receive a chance to win prizes from the gift shop.
The Santa Fe Children’s Museum’s winter hours are now in effect. Monday and Tuesday closed with school groups on 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. with free admission for children after 4 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
