Come and Discover the strange and spooky side of aviation and space at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center’s Annual Air and Scare! This annual event features trick-or treating, hands-on activities, face-painting, costumed Star Wars characters, and much more. Visitors are encouraged to come in costume! There are more than twenty activity and discovery stations and even six candy stations, to keep up your energy though the museum. The Air & Scare has something for everyone in the family! The youngest visitors will enjoy story times, face-painting stations, and hands-on activities. Older kids will enjoy simulator rides and seeing the SR-71 Blackbird that plays a key role in the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Some of the spooky activities planned for that day include: the Alien Blood Boil Discovery Station, Witch Story times, a Halloween Tattoo Station, demonstration of a Mars Rover with Martian Roadkill, and Creepy Crawley Robots. This year’s event is held on October 24, 2009 from 2-8pm, admission is free to the museum, but remember there is a fee for parking.
