Holidays in Space Annual Passholder Appreciation Event

Dec 13, 2019 04:00 PM Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Join us for our Annual Passholder Appreciation Event! This year, celebrate Holidays in Space with a 1960s-inspired holiday bash of galactic proportions! On December 13 at 4:00 PM, the Atlantis West Lawn Pavilion (located next to Space Shuttle Atlantis®) will be open to only annual passholders as a thank you for an incredible year.

During Holidays in Space, step through the rocket archway decked out for the holidays and enter into a retro wonderland. Immerse yourself in 10,000 sparkling lights, festive holiday décor, holiday music, interactive photo opportunities, space trivia and fun surprises throughout the day. Plus, witness a dazzling spectacle of LED lights starting as the sun begins to set and watch an inspiring short film that journeys across NASA’s historic missions before launching into the future of space exploration: the Moon and Mars.

Stop by the pavilion for complimentary sweet treats and drinks and some special gifts including the annual Holidays in Space pin. The pavilion will be open throughout the evening, so come and go as you please. Do not forget to bring your Annual Pass as you will need to present it at the event.

The entire visitor complex is also decorated with the spirit of the holidays. Check out Instagram-ready photo opportunities ranging from holiday decorations, 3D immersive displays and space-themed backdrops. After dark, the 10,000 twinkling lights create the perfect holiday photo backdrop. During Holidays in Space, the short film continuously runs, beginning at 5:00 PM each night until park close. It will be available through December 31, 2019, including Christmas Day.
