Get them before they Disappear!

Once Upon a Time…the classic beginning to any story, right? On June 24, fantasy comes to life as your child comes face-to-face with their favorite princesses and superheroes!

Meeting and taking your photo with your favorite costumed characters isn’t all that’s happening on this enchanted evening! When can you sing along with tiara-clad princesses, flex your muscles with caped superheroes, enjoy scrumptious kid-approved food, and help your favorite Children’s Museum, all while taking pleasure in a marvelous magical evening? During Discovery Center’s brand new fundraiser this summer! 

Kids can meet and mingle with a "real" Bat Hero, Snow Queen, Mermaid Princess, Spider Hero, Arabian Princess, Woman of Wonder and even Belle all courtesy of Once Upon a Dream Performances.

Princess fun for all ages includes being silly in the “snow”, fashioning a sparkling light-up wand, and playing in a mermaid’s tide pool. Superhero fans will find themselves strong enough to lift a parent, create their own superhero capes, and even scale a real 24-foot climbing wall just like their favorite Spider Hero!
