Bubble Bash 2017
Walk on the Wild Side


Members: $20 per person
Non-members: $25 per person

Sunday, December 31
9 a.m. – Noon


Ring in the New Year with a WILD family adventure! Don a pith hat and make a vest to decorate with stickers as you travel through each station, weave a beautiful collaborative canopy, contribute to the firefly fluorescent sky, build a fort, construct a raft to float down the stream, move to the beat of African drums, let out a roar to the countdown to Noon confetti celebration, and more. No passports are needed for this exotic expedition!

There will be a quiet countdown and quiet jungle room for our more sensitive visitors to enjoy.

Bubble Bash is THE place for families to be on New Year’s Eve. This annual year-end celebration is an important fundraiser for the Museum and, now in its 16th year, has become a holiday tradition for families to celebrate together.
