Look Around Lubbock: Halloween science carnivals

The Science Spectrum is hosting a Spooky Science Carnival on Saturday, October 28 from 5 to 9 p.m. The event is geared for families and kids up to age 14 who are looking for Halloween fun. The museum will also host the Silly Science Carnival for preschoolers on October 31 from 10 a.m. to noon. For more information see the press releases below.


One of Lubbock’s largest annual Halloween events, the Spooky Science Carnival at the Science Spectrum, is back again for another exciting year of “spooky, not scary”, safe family fun! The Science Spectrum has long built a tradition of providing great family oriented informal science education and looks forward each year to the fun that Halloween can bring in continuing to explore science with the public. Locally, there is also a great need for safe alternatives to traditional trick-or-treating and “scarier” haunted houses geared for older ages. The Spooky Science Carnival has become the perfect fit for both needs!

The fun all takes place on Saturday, October 28th from 5:00 to 9:00pm. This event is great for families and kids up to age 14 looking for a safe Halloween alternative and a fun, educational party all rolled into one. This year’s Spooky Science Carnival will include:

· Free trick-or-treating in the Lobby

· Carnival Style Games with guaranteed prizes

· Creepy Critters live animal display
