Get ready for Beakernight

RobotMusic (1024x683)

Beakernight is tonight.

I was out this afternoon as the robots were getting set up for the music concert in East Village.  The kids will love it and so will the adults.  It all starts at 8pm and will cover the area around Olympic Plaza, East Village, the RiverWalk and Victoria Park.

What you will see tonight:

Come for the fun.  Stay for the dancing and party!!!

It will be a plethora of sensory overload!!!  How awesome is that!!

Remember also that tomorrow is the final day of Maker Faire YYC at Alberta College of Art and Design from 10:00am – 5:00pm (see

Oh, oh, OH, Oh!!!

And the Catharsis Catapult is happening to see how far you can toss your crap (or your ex’s crap) using a catapult on the grounds of Fort Calgary between 1:00-3:00pm.

How much more awesome is when you put it all together!!!!  It might almost be as awesome as Nuit Blanche was last year!

Will there be liftoff?

RocketShip (1024x683)

This afternoon I visited the 40 foot high Raygun Gothic Rocket which was developed by Five Ton Crane, a team from Oakland, California.

It is possible to visit inside and check out the amazing command centre inside.  It is something that if you have children, or grandchildren – or you are a kid at heart – you definitely should investigate.  There are three levels inside the space ship and guides available inside and out to answer questions.

Find it at the launch site located at 1325 – 1 Street SW this weekend ONLY.

It is open from noon to 8:00pm Wednesday-Friday; 10:00am – midnight on Saturday; and 10:00am – 5:00pm on Sunday during Beakerhead.
