Third Annual Event Through Jan. 5 Features New Space-Inspired Toy Exhibit
From now through Jan. 5, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is holding its third annual “Holidays in Space.” The Visitor Complex will be adorned with a stunning array of holiday decorations, host daily visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus and spark the imagination with the new “Through the Toy Box: An Out-of-this-World Collection,” featuring toys, both vintage and contemporary, inspired by outer space.
From ray guns and space ships to coin banks and cosmic action figures, “Through the Toy Box: An Out-of-this-World Collection” represents mankind’s fascination with space over the last 100 years in the form of toys. The collection features nearly 100 treasured toys children have used to play out their fantasies of space travel, some of whom turned those dreams into reality. The compilation of space-themed toys from around the world will be displayed in IMAX East alongside Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Sitting on beautiful gold thrones and surrounded by a gorgeous Winter Wonderland scene, Santa and Mrs. Claus will greet visitors daily from Nov. 29 through Dec. 24. Each day, the first 200 children to visit Santa will receive a voucher for a free gift. In addition, Kodak representatives will be on hand to snap the perfect family photo, sitting with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and provide prints for sale.
“Holidays in Space” wouldn’t be complete without festive space-themed décor throughout the Visitor Complex. A towering, 42-foot International Space Station (ISS)-themed Christmas tree located in the Rocket Garden will be adorned with warm-white bulbs, strobe lights and 600 miniature flags from the 15 ISS partner countries. The ISS mural just outside the Rocket Garden will be swathed in holiday candlelight. Decorative wreaths, garlands, lights, ribbons and bows throughout the Visitor Complex add to the holiday festival atmosphere.
“Holidays in Space” is included in admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
