Don’t worry, the giant electric bolt you’ll see arcing across the night sky is perfectly safe. It’s Beakernight! Add fire, lasers, light and music and you’ve got the making of science’s biggest garden party with installations, hands-on experiences and stage performances spread out across Fort Calgary and the RiverWalk. Check out the drones and linger for a while with an inspirational cocktail in hand. Please, just watch your step – rumour has it that a UFO is on a collision course for Calgary.
By the way, there is no dress code. Really. This is a time to show the true you – as wild and wacky or as simple and true as you feel in your inner core. Show up! Want some ideas? Check out the new Beakerhead digs at 1405 4 St SW, and get inspired.
