CLEVELAND (January 12, 2017) – Great Lakes Science Center has out of this world news for the New Year! After a one-year hiatus, Cleveland’s favorite outer space dance party is coming back on Saturday, April 8 – it’s the return of Yuri’s Night!

Dance the night away to live music from Tricky Dick and the Cover-Ups, and enjoy an open bar with beer and wine, appetizers and specialty bites, a scavenger hunt, balloon drop and science demonstrations.

Come dressed to impress in your best outer space/science fiction themed costume and compete for prizes in the costume contest, test your wits against an astronaut in a trivia challenge, and experience the museum after dark!

Money raised from Yuri’s Night helps fund the Science Center’s STEM education initiatives, day camp scholarships and other programs that encourage curiosity and provide opportunities for tomorrow’s scientific leaders.

Or, take your experience to the cosmic level and purchase a VIP ticket for $100 and get early access to the party, admittance to the VIP lounge with complimentary beer, wine and mixed drinks, exclusive menu items, and complimentary parking in the Science Center’s attached garage.
