Explorit: Celebrate fall, family, farms … and spiders

By
From page A5 | October 05, 2012 |

Fall is in full swing and Explorit Science Center has the perfect way to get in the autumn spirit!

Check out spider web cotton candy, games, arts and crafts and more for your enjoyment at the Fall Family Festival on Saturday, Oct. 13. In addition to Explorit’s new exhibition on agriculture “Beyond the Table,” Explorit will have carnival games, face painting, a bounce house and much more!

Learn about spider anatomy by making a yummy edible spider. Spider safari guided nature walks leave every hour, and also be sure to visit Tarantula Town to see more than 10 different kinds of tarantulas. Woodstock’s will be selling delicious pizza and beverages, plus there will be “spider silk” cotton candy for sale, and great raffle prizes to win!

One of the fabulous raffle prizes up for grabs is a free bounce house rental from Bargain Jumpers of Vacaville, who also donated the free bounce house for the festival. Or you could win a family four-pack to Dave’s Pumpkin Patch, which includes admission to the corn maze, hay rides, “cornival” and two pony rides.

If shaking your groove thing is more your style, you could win a free month of unlimited Zumba Fitness classes from The Klubhouse at both locations in West Sacramento or Lincoln. All these prizes and more will be given away at the Family Festival. Tickets are $3 each or five for $10, and can be purchased between now and Oct. 13. Buying a raffle ticket is a great way to support Explorit and science education.

If you haven’t heard about Explorit’s Community Science Project, “Spiders in Your World” find out all about it and how you can be a part of it at the Family Festival. Explorit will even be selling its brand-new T-shirt featuring glow-in-the-dark spiders!

Explorit will be open at 3141 Fifth St. from 1 to 5 p.m. Oct. 13 for the festival, and admission will be $10. Admission is free for members and those ages 2 and under. Those who buy a membership will get four free raffle tickets.
