Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex’s annual high-tech holiday celebration, Holidays In Space, returns for its fifth year from December 21-January 1, 2017.
The centerpiece of the nightly event is a “Spirit of Exploration” show projected against the side of a Saturn 1B. Reimagined for 2016, it takes guests on a journey through NASA’s history and plans for the future.
Friday, I had the chance to attend a mixed media/passholder preview of the 2015 edition of “Holidays in Space” at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, and I have to say it’s a lovely addition to all the other incredible things to see at the complex.
Your first taste of the holiday theming is the giant NASA logo that has been tranformed into a giant ornament. Peace on Earth, indeed.
Returning for its fourth year, “Holidays in Space” offers visitors to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex a unique hi-tech way to celebrate the holidays, along with the history of space exploration.
Highlights of the celebration include the very cool “Spirit of Exploration” show, a one-of-a-kind presentation of space and holiday imagery shown on the side of the 223-foot-long Saturn 1B rocket, accompanied by mood lighting in the Rocket Garden.
