When: Wed., Aug. 17, 5:30-9:30 p.m. 2016
Play with a purpose at the Happiest Hour, a fundraiser to support The Strong. The Happiest Hour is The Strong’s after-hours event for adults only. Blast off into the imaginative universes of popular science-fiction series at the original Rockets, Robots, and Ray Guns exhibit! Build and launch your own rocket or try your hand at interactive elements, including: science-fiction arcade games, such as Tron, Johnny Mnemonic, and Terminator 2; an alien art gallery; a time machine; and a giant version of Space Invaders. Not interested in battling octopus-like aliens? Then, dance the night away with DJ Naps, or challenge your friends to a lightsaber duel after exploring the Star Wars- themed exhibit, The Force at Play. Enjoy a sampling of delicious bar-style snacks courtesy of Marshall Street Bar and Grill and cash bars featuring the local beers of Roc Brewing Co., while exploring two floors of hands-on, interactive exhibits.
