"Embrace Space" Details
The theme for August is Embrace Space, celebrating the fact that Hancock County is home to the INFINITY Science Center, and one of the largest space-centered complexes in the nation - Stennis Space Center. INFINITY will have a booth with interactive exhibits set up at 216 Main Street (California Drawstrings).
Shops on the first block of Main will be serving Moon Pies and non-alcoholic Space Punch, and hosting a Martian & Astronaut costume contest at 4:30pm, with prizes for top three winners.
On the second block, merchants will focus on Fashion of the Future, with a Caftans In Space Block Party, so wear your most best Star Trek attire. There'll be an Interstellar Photo Booth at Smith & Lens Gallery (106 S. 2nd Street), along with a pop-up show on their patio of paintings and pottery by Catie Daniel.
Many stores will offer discounts to NASA and INFINITY employees with IDs to show appreciation for local people involved with space exploration.
The Social Mosaic performs at the Mockingbird Café (110 South Second Street) from 6pm - 9pm.
