Discovery Center Museum, 711 N. Main St., will present “Kaboom!,” a “booming” day of family fun from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Friday, July 4.
Spud guns, rockets, sparklers and flags! Science and art join hands for this celebration. Experiment with explosions, launch mini rockets, construct a potato popper and more. Create your own light-up hat and make a patriotic collage. Leave your car parked at Riverfront Museum Park July 4, and take the short walk downtown to the parade and fireworks.
All Kaboom! activities are included with museum admission. General admission is $8 adults, $8 children (ages 2 to 17), and free to museum members and children age 1 and younger. Hours open are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily. Contact the museum at (815) 963-6769 or visit discoverycentermuseum.org.
