Join horror maven and hostess Peaches Christ for her Zombie Drag Show and Costume Contest (un-dead attire encouraged!). Dance at Miss Misery’s “Zombie Prom”. Undead makeup artists will be on hand to channel your inner zombie. In the planetarium, catch the Life and Death of Stars at 6:30pm and discover how some stars live on as “zombies” in the after-life, followed by two showings of Life: A Cosmic Story. Music by DJ Tomas Diablo.
