For the safety of our guests and in order to provide the best guest experience possible, we have decided to postpone our Harry Potter event due to the inclement weather expected on Saturday. The Harry Potter event is being rescheduled to Saturday, September 12, from 4 to 9 pm.If you are registered for the Harry Potter event, you do NOT need to buy another ticket.Our Manager of STEM Theaters, Caitlyn Zarzar, is a meteorologist, and she tells us the remnants of Tropical Depression Laura will become incorporated with a broad low pressure system and associated cold front as it progresses eastward toward the Carolinas on Saturday morning. Waves of strong to severe storms are possible ahead of this circulation with heavy rainfall, lightning, and gusty winds. Even if the storms move through quickly Saturday afternoon, we still could see some damaging wind gusts that could take down trees and power lines in our area. Stay safe and heed any warnings from your local meteorologists and the National Weather Service.Kaleideum North will reopen our Outdoor Science and Environmental Park on Sunday, August 30.After this Sunday, the Outdoor Science and Environmental Park will be open on Saturdays and Sundays for the public.
