Holiday Kick-Off Event

Light up the Night with Us!

November 15, 2018
6:00 PM

Join us in AMP lobby (off of Market Street entrance) as we unveil our gingerbread house display and festive holiday decorations, featuring beautifully decorated trees and miniature train display. We'll be crowning the winners of our gingerbread house contest and Santa himself will be making an appearance to hear holiday wish lists from the littles.

Get a first glance at our holiday exhibit(ion) in fun, Whitaker Wonderland, featuring a sock skate rink and snowball pit. Build and play in our temporary exhibit, Castle Builder: A LEGO® Building Exhibit. Access to both special exhibits is included in Harsco Science Center admission!  We're offering special admission to Harsco Science Center during this event for just $10 (ages 3+) so families can check out what's new and enjoy some yummy treats courtesy of Hershey's Ice Cream.

A "pop up holiday bar" (cash only) will be available in AMP lobby and will feature a special holiday cocktail  along with call brands and bottled beer. Grab a drink and check out the decorations or purchase a ticket to Theatre Harrisburg's "Newsies" in Sunoco Performance Theater and enjoy a few laughs!

We'll also be offering a special deal on Whitaker Center Family Memberships - stop by the Box Office for details and to purchase and check off some gifts from your list!
