A spooktacular Halloween returns to the Cade 


From tricks and treats to oozy slime and creepy fake blood, a witch’s brew of fun awaits kids and families at the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention on Halloween weekend.


Sparks and Spooks takes over the Cade Museum the entire day, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 30.


The Halloween spooktacular features a safe environment with games and activities that will cast a spell of curiosity on all those who participate. Kids can learn about the macabre and mysterious forces of nature from the Cade’s own mad scientists while participating in engaging, sensory-friendly activities, arts and crafts.


Howling surprises await from the Cade’s 3D printer, demonstrations in the Creativity and Fab Labs and full access to the museum’s current theme and exhibits: Toys & Games, Measurement Rules and The Great Indoors.


Children (17 years & under) get in free in costume, so bring your little superheroes, monsters and beasties all suited up to the Oct. 30th event.


Part of an annual tradition, Sparks and Spooks has included in past years a scavenger hunt, mini spider-launching catapults, “Makey Makey with Pumpkins'' on a mobile cart, and an electro ball and conductivity test tubes —literally, hair-raising fun.


“We have been having a blast planning Sparks and Spooks at the Cade — we love the fall and all the madcap make believe that comes with it,” said Stephanie Bailes, the museum’s President and Executive Director.  “The little everyday transformations of kids’ play fuel their imagination, sparking the innovation of tomorrow.”


And for another treat: The Cade Museum will be offering a 30 percent off sale in the Loot Lab gift shop. Admission to the museum is not required to shop in the gift shop.


There’s truly something for every-body. (Insert creepy laugh here.)
