The staff and volunteers at Bloomsburg Children’s Museum are shining up their lightsabers for their annual “May the Force Be With You Day” fundraiser, July 13 from 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Children’s Museum. There will be a special members-only preview from 10:00-10:30 a.m.
Visitors will enjoy favorites from past years like meeting and taking pictures with characters, making their own lightsaber, playing blast-a-trooper and dunk-a-trooper, and design a droid. Plus, this year you can play a round of Ewok Mini Golf, sit in an X-wing fighter and hop on a speeder bike. In addition to this, there will be food, face painting, crafts, and a Jedi training course. Win prizes at the costume and Wookie imitation contest.
Admission to the event is $6.50, which includes the Museum admission. Wear a costume or themed t-shirt and get $1 off admission.
Shawna Meiser, Director of the Children’s Museum says, “It has become one of our largest fundraisers that supports the many no-cost programs and events we do.”
The Museum, a registered 501(c)3, produces cost-free events like BloomCON Hack4Kidz, Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire, Special Needs Nights at the Museum, cost-free field trips, and provides scholarships for any of their programs and classes.
Meiser continues, “Funds raised at events like this enables the Museum to keep inspiring children and adults to become life-long learners.”
