Kaleideum will welcome “wizards, muggles, and pranksters” of all ages for a magical night with an April Fool’s twist at Kaleideum North on Saturday, March 28, from 6 to 8:30 pm. Event guests will participate in a wide variety of activities, including watching a Live Science “Potions” presentation, meeting a “snake of extraordinary size,” sampling butterbeer, taste-testing Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, and creating their own wands. In Zonko’s Joke Shop, participants can choose to create their own Polyslime Potion or make a special prank to surprise unsuspecting friends or family members on April 1st!
Volunteers from Owl’s Roost, a local wildlife rehabilitation organization, will introduce visitors to several non-releasable birds of prey, including two species of owls, and Foothills Brewing will host a cash bar selling a variety of drinks, including their popular non-alcoholic Butter Beer Coffee. Costumes are encouraged!
Tickets are limited, so purchasing tickets in advance online is strongly recommended. Admission is $10 per person for Kaleideum members and $12 per person for non-members. Remaining tickets (if any) will be sold at the door for the same prices. Kaleideum North is located at 400 W Hanes Mill Road in Winston-Salem.
