Discover the strange and spooky side of aviation and space at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum's Udvar-HazyCenter's Annual Air and Scare! Arrive in costume for this annual event, which features trick-or treating, hands-on activities, face-painting, costumed Star Wars characters, and much more.

This year’s event will kick off with a Costume Parade at 2:30 pm. With more than twenty activity and discovery stations and six candy stations, Air & Scare has something for everyone in the family! For the youngest visitors there will be story times, face-painting stations, and hands-on activities. Older kids will enjoy simulator rides and seeing the SR-71 Blackbird that plays a key role in the current Transformers movie. Some of the spooky activities planned for that day include: the Alien Blood Boil Discovery Station, Witch Story times, a Halloween Tattoo Station, demonstration of a Mars Rover with Martian Roadkill, and Creepy Crawley Robots.
