Discovery Center Kicks off Summer

Posted:
Tuesday's bad weather didn't sweep anyone off to Oz but it did keep Tuesday's summer kickoff carnival at the Discovery Center indoors.

The Seventh Annual Summer Carnival this year was Wizard of Oz themed this year.

Kids got a chance to dress up as their favorite Oz characters, play the flying monkey toss, have their fortunes told by "Professor Marvel" and learn about tornados from a meteorologist.

Staff from the Discovery Center say that everyone can identify with the characters from the Wizard of Oz.

Director of Marketing Martha Steed said, "Oh well, it's not just for the kids I think the parents are enjoying it as well. But it is fun because it's been a long school year, and it's time to kick back and relax and enjoy everything that is summer."

The Discovery Center will be open Monday through Friday 10-4, Saturday 10-5, and closed on Sundays.
