Did you know that staff at the National Air and Space Museum enjoy dressing up for the annual Halloween event, Air and Scare, just as much as our visitors? The event, which will kick off tomorrow at 2:00 pm (ET) at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia, will bring out lots of superheroes, Star Wars characters, princesses, pumpkins, and many more. It also brings out a creative side in the Museum’s Visitor Services staff, who have teamed up over the years with group costume themes. If you see us individually, we might be a Dorothy, Oscar the Grouch, or Where’s Waldo, but you’ll find an entire cast of characters if you see us as a group.

If you’re still planning your costume for the event tomorrow, grab family and friends to join forces and get creative!  Make sure you stop by the Welcome Center to show off your group costume theme. We’re always looking for inspiration for future ideas!

Can you guess what theme Visitor Services has dreamed up this year? We’ll unveil the answer next week in the comment section of this post.
