All parents know the importance of date nights, but with everyone’s busy schedules, it can be tough. Add in the difficulty of finding a reliable sitter that meshes well with the kids for more stress.
The Pacific Science Center’s Parents' Night Out events provides the perfect solution. Adults can go on their date night knowing the kiddos will be safe while enjoying an evening of non-stop fun with other kids their age.
The monthly events each cover a different topic while they all include an IMAX film, after hour’s exhibit exploration, hands off activities, dinner, a late night snack and a planetarium presentation or laser light show. The Parents' Night Outs drop off is between 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., pickup 10:00 to 11: 00 p.m. and open to ages 5-12 / grades K-6.
