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.
Beakernight has an official afterparty! Head to The Palace Theatre at 219 8 Ave SW at 11pm. Take in the British electronic music production duo Delta Heavy from London. They found fame with their 2012 single "Get By". Their latest album features a single called "Oscillator" – sciencey enough for ya?
