“They can look forward to a ton of cool exhibitors. There’s lots of robots running around, there’s lots of bright shinny things and lots of things that move. And we also have just a ton of family activities,” said Jessica Bickford, marketing coordinator for the science centre.

The HABEX space balloon project is one of the exhibits garnering a lot of attention.

It was created by Lorenzo Esercitato and William McCullum and features a styrofoam creation that was lifted 100,000 feet into the stratosphere by a balloon.

The festival concludes Saturday evening with a showcase featuring candle-lit lanterns and a dance show starting at 6 p.m.
