SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS

Teaching Creatures presents Animals of the Night, 10:15-11:40 am
Explore the world of nocturnal animals. Learn about the tools that these creatures use to master their role as the hunter or the hunted under the darkness of night.  See up-close a gecko, sugar sliders, nocturnal frogs and more.  

Prismatic Magic presents Halloween Laser Spooktacular, 1-2 pm
More zany than scary, this laser show is a great mix of current pop music and classic Halloween titles such as Monster Mash, Purple People Eater, and Thriller. Laser animations of cartoon-like caricatures of pumpkins, creepy critters, and classic Halloween personalities will make the audience to sing, clap, and cheer.
