After a year hiatus the Science Museum of Long Island decided to bring back the SMLI Halloween Family Fun Event on Friday, November 1st.
The original weather forecast had the staff a bit worried but the evening turned out to be just perfect. There was something for children, as well as adults, of all ages. Several of the stations were favorites from Halloweens from the past but this year we wanted to add some new surprises. At the end of the self-guided spooky walk in the woods guests were treated to a warm campfire, a haunting tale and marshmallow roasting. After guests got their face painted, a giant cutout pumpkin was a great spot for a photo op. An expanded refreshment room, thanks to the many organizations and people who donated, made sure no one went home “dying” of hunger. As an added twist this year as well, costumed guests had to solve the mystery of which animal was hiding in the visitor center.
All of the princesses, pirates and minions seemed to have a wonderful time. Since the Halloween Family Fun Event was a huge success, the staff here at the Science Museum looks forward to bringing this haunted happening back again next year.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this event and helped to make it our best Halloween event yet. We hope to see many of you at our holiday workshops, throughout the year.
