Thanks to all of the Museum member families who brought cute pajamas and lots of holiday cheer to our Polar Express pajama parties! Hundreds of cookies and numerous gallons of milk were consumed - and our member kids handcrafted tons of holiday ornaments. But of course, the highlight was the super-comfy showing of The Polar Express on the biggest screen in Virginia.
On December 1, our fruitcake balloon made its debut in the Dominion Christmas Parade. Created to celebrate Fruitcake Science, our favorite holiday tradition of destroying – oops, we mean experimenting on holiday fruitcakes in the name of scientific inquiry, we were thrilled to be floating everyone’s least-favorite holiday treat down Broad Street. A hearty bunch of staff and friends of the Museum wrangled the balloon, including our member contest winners – the Barbieri Family.
