Costume contest will take place at 2:00 p.m., and children are invited to participate in costume parade. Adults are also welcome to get into the spirit with their own cosplay, but must adhere to the same rules for the evening event:
Please use common sense... If you can’t take it on a plane, then it’s probably best to leave it at home! When planning your costume, keep in mind that GeekFest is a family-friendly event. Please note we cannot and will not pre-approve your props, but Security may need to check them at the door.
The Dos and Don'ts:
All fake/toy/prop guns must have an orange tip, whether glued plastic or painted.
The Boonshoft Museum reserves the right to confiscate any prop deemed dangerous and to eject any attendee who may be a danger to others.
Be sure to follow the Boonshoft Museum Astronomy Department for updates.
