Back for its third year, Pacific Science Center is hosting a full night of entertainment on New Year’s Eve. Their party, SPECTRA, allows guests to tour the exhibitions after hours, enjoy late night live science and laser shows, games and entertainment, and an unobstructed view of the Space Needle fireworks at midnight!
I have to say, I’ve been to some after-hours parties at the Pacific Science Center and there really isn’t anything like it! This place is a gem on it’s own and there’s something quite surreal about being amid the bug exhibition and dinosaurs after dark with a cocktail in hand.
Tickets here. Event is 21+
In their words:
“Set your New Year’s Eve ablaze and start 2016 with the most sensational party at Pacific Science Center, SPECTRA 2016: New Year’s Eve Under the Arches. SPECTRAboasts the best, unobstructed view of the annual fireworks show, top DJs from KEXP and plenty of entertainment that is sure to delight. Back for the third year with an extraordinary lineup of entertainment and a few surprises too… Sip on a flute of brut and dance to the musical musings of KEXP’s top DJs; discover the science of the combustion with live science demonstrations; indulge on signature cocktails, craft beers and select wines; ignite your sense of wonder inside our expansive exhibit halls, planetarium, and Laser Dome. Then, at the stroke of midnight join us on our historical courtyards for an unsurpassed, unobstructed view of the fireworks. Top it all off with a toast to the year past and the year to come, right under our signature arches (talk about an unbeatable Instagram opportunity) before heading back inside for more music and dancing.”
