GAINESVILLE, FLA.— October 3, 2022
What’s better than finding a full-size candy bar in your Halloween treat bag? A visit to the Cade Museum for the annual “Sparks and Spooks” event!
Every dad and mummy is invited to carve out some time for this family-friendly spooktacular on Saturday, October 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Children (17 years & under) in costume will be treated to free admission to the museum where they’ll enjoy a variety of fang-tastic games and activities conjured up by the Cade’s mad scientists like making Halloween slime, catapulting a creepy, crawly spider, and more!
Kids can also create their own spooky animations in Animationland, explore the dark and mysterious reaches of our galaxy in Wandering the Milky Way and even learn where all that Halloween candy goes after it’s consumed in the Cade’s permanent exhibit, “At First Flush”.
“We love hosting this fun Halloween event every year”, says Stephanie Bailes, President and CEO of the Cade Museum. “Imaginative play encourages creativity and innovation in children, two skills that are vital for inventors. It’s exciting to think that one of these little superheroes or princesses might just grow up and invent the next Gatorade!”
No advance tickets are necessary for the Sparks and Spooks event.
A special trick or treating event for Cade Museum members will also take place on the patio beginning at 12pm.
Sparks and Spooks is sure to be a howling good time that will lift your spirits!
About the Cade Museum
The mission of the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention in Gainesville, Florida, is to transform communities by inspiring and equipping future inventors, entrepreneurs, and visionaries. Named after Mary Cade and her husband, Dr. James Robert Cade, the lead inventor of Gatorade, the project was spearheaded by their daughter, Phoebe Cade Miles, and her husband, Richard Miles, since 2006. They encourage the development of innovation ecosystems through the Cade Prize for Innovation, the Cade's proprietary Innovation Education learning framework, and the 21,000-square-foot hands-on learning museum that promotes the development of an inventive mindset which the Cade calls Inventivity™. The Cade believes every person should have access to the right to invent and innovate inherent in America’s DNA and works diligently in outreach efforts to bring this understanding to all, with an emphasis on the underserved.
