(Berkeley, CA) August 28, 2010 – Calling all outer space aliens to Habitot on Saturday, August 28 from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm for Family Alien Day, an out-of-this-world event. Children are encouraged to arrive dressed in costumes from another planet – those in alien costumes will even receive an outer space prize! Families can use glow-in-the dark face paint in Habitot’s Face Painting station, and create alien antennas and build recycled planet sculptures in the Art Studio. Fun outer space-inspired games all day, including planet bowling and crater making. Thirst-quenching Moon punch and delicious crater cookies will be served at noon.

This event concludes Habitot’s summer of special space science activities related to the Rocket Ship and Mission Control exhibit. Regular admission rates apply. For more information about Habitot's events and free days, please visit http://www.habitot.org.
