Fire-eating performers. Hair-raising science demonstrations. The very best circus-style food. Cirque des Sciences has it all, and this entertaining, unique fundraiser is back by popular demand!
Morehead Planetarium and Science Center presents its second annual Cirque des Sciences on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013 from 7:30 p.m. to midnight. This evening event for adults ages 21 and up combines the artistry and fun of the circus with amazing science demonstrations!
Cirque des Sciences also features fine food and drinks from some of the areas’s most popular dining establishments and a silent auction, followed by dessert and dancing under the stars of the GlaxoSmithKline Fulldome Theater.
For some lucky guests, the fun will extend far beyond the Cirque des Sciences extravaganza! Silent auction packages include adventures ranging from a 1946 Piper Cub flight to a London vacation to a Durham Bulls party for 20 guests.
