The Strong’s Happiest Hour
August 17, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm$15
Play with a purpose and help support The Strong at the Happiest Hour, an after-hours event for adults only!
Blast off to imaginative universes at The Strong’s Rockets, Robots, and Ray Guns exhibit. Explore the ways that science-fiction books, toys, movies, and video games have captured people’s imaginations. Build and launch a paper rocket or try your hand at science-fiction arcade games.
Guests can also check out The Strong’s Star Wars-themed exhibit, The Force at Play, and then take part in lightsaber duels with Rochester Fencing Club and foam-dart battles with Rochester Foam Dart League. Come dressed in your favorite science-fiction-themed costume for a chance to win prizes!
The event also features a dance party with DJ Naps, a sampling of snacks from Marshall Street Bar and Grill and Sugary Delights, craft beers from Roc Brewing, and much more—including more than a hundred playable video games and pinball machines!
The Happiest Hour is presented in part by generous sponsors and The Strong Play Makers, a volunteer group of young professionals. Proceeds support The Strong’s educational mission and community outreach programs.
Tickets are $15 each. Order today at www.museumofplay.org/happiest-hour while supplies last. Happiest Hour guests must be 21 years of age or older and provide valid photo ID prior to entry. For more information, visit museumofplay.org/happiesthour.
