Perseids Pyjama Party
Friday, August 16, 2013
8 pm to Midnight
The event may wrap up early tonight if the weather turns poor.
A pyjama party under the stars! Wear your cozy pyjamas, bring your pillows, blankets, flashlights and lawnchairs, and sit back to enjoy one of the busiest times in the sky during the annual Perseids Meteor Shower. Spread out your blanket or your lawn chair and watch the Perseid Meteor Showers without interruption from city lights. While we wait for dark to fall, there will be family fun activities. Activities are free with regular admission.
Please feel free to enjoy the Garden before the evening's activities start!
