5-4-3-2-1 BLASTOFF … Columbia Memorial Space Center presents … Charles Phoenix hosting the first ever Apollo Space Capsule holiday lighting ceremony and party. This FREE, out-of-this-world event takes place on the very site where all six Apollo Space Capsules that successfully transported astronauts to the moon were designed and built.

Classic outdoor Christmas lights will illuminate the iconic Apollo Space Capsule at the entrance of the Columbia Memorial Space Center.

The bright idea to light up the Apollo Space Capsule for Christmas came from Charles, who dared to ask Columbia Memorial Space Center director, Ben Dickow, “Has anyone ever lit up a Apollo Space Capsule like a Christmas tree before?
Ben said, “I don’t think so, lets do it!”

Please bring donuts to exchange and enjoy while singing along to festive Christmas carols and engaging in the spirit of the season.

Coffee and Hot Chocolate will be served.

Festive outer space age holiday dress is encouraged

FREE parking, and plenty of it

Tell your friends to spread the word … and arrive with donuts!
