Long Island Children’s Museum will be hosting a celebration of love and friendship for families to enjoy the spirit of Valentine’s Day at its “Be Mine Ball” on Saturday, February 11 from 6-9 p.m. The after-hours party offers plenty of sweet activities for the whole family to enjoy while still reserving February 14 for grownups to enjoy a night of romance.
Visitors will enjoy a range of LOVE-ly activities to enjoy with all the special people in their life. The night will feature three-hours of music that everyone in the family can dance to, together. Our DJ will get guests on the dance floor doing the Electric Slide, Macarena and of course, the Cupid Shuffle.
Families can take a break from the dance floor and cool off as they create some themed crafts and party accessories like Crazy in Love top hats, Be Mine bead necklaces and Puppy Love puppets. Add an extra dash of color to your party attire (all guests are encouraged to wear red to the party) with a stop at our Follow Your Heart face painting station. Decorate and enjoy a sweet treat before heading back to the dance floor. LICM will show its love to guests by sending all children home with a bag filled with mementos of the night.
“At the Children’s Museum we like to take advantage of every opportunity to teach children (and remind grownups) of the importance of expressing appreciation and love for family and friends,” says Aimee Terzulli, LICM Director of Education and Visitor Experience. “We can’t think of a more appropriate event to host at the museum.”
The Be Mine Ball is the latest holiday event the Museum offers to allow families to celebrate together. Other popular events include “Spring EGGstravaganza,” “Ghostly Gala,” and “Countdown to 12.”
Tickets for the Be Mine Ball are available at $11 per person and can be purchased online (www.licm.org) or at the Museum’s Box Office.
