Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is throwing a holiday bash! This year NASA’s notable space center is taking a trip back to the 1960s for an all-out groovy good time.

The Space Center recently announced its 2019 retro holiday bash theme. Guests to the out-of-this-world attraction can check out 10,000 sparkling lights, tunes from the ’60s and more from Dec. 13 through Dec. 31.

Therrin Protze, chief operating officer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, said in a press release, “The 1960s set the stage for space exploration in the United States with the important Apollo 11 and 12 missions.” Protze continued, “This year’s Holidays in Space begins during that era and takes us through NASA’s history and into the future, capturing the excitement of the time. And now, as we embark on a new era of space exploration as a nation, we’re thrilled to celebrate this important time period during our annual holiday event.”

Along with the light displays and mod ’60s music, the Visitor Center will also treat party-goers to a multimedia short film experience, Holidays in Space!, and plenty of photo opps. Get more info on this retro holiday event here!
