Get ready for Halloween with Fright Night: Death by Chocolate, a chocolate-themed, 21-and-over celebration after hours at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science (NMMNHS) on Oct. 28.
What: Fright Night: Death by Chocolate will feature a costume contest, along with fractals, frights, and plenty of chocolate!
Attendees will have a chance to experience NMMNHS’s “Chocolate: The Exhibition” after the Museum closes, offering a new way to experience the exhibition that explores the history and science behind chocolate. Then dance the night away next to our very own Bisti Beast! Don’t forget to dress to impress, as the Museum will host a costume contest with three prizes for each category.
This event will also feature the Museum’s first Fractal shows in more than two years under the NMMNHS Planetarium dome. There will be two showings, at 7:00 and 8:00, and seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
