Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex Lights Up this Holiday Season

CAPE CANAVERAL – November 19, 2018 – KENNEDY SPACE CENTER – The annual “Holidays in Space” celebration at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex returns with a new kinetic light show and breathtaking holiday décor. Just after Thanksgiving, guests will begin to see festive decorations throughout the visitor complex, setting the mood for the new show which begins December 14. Open every day from December 14 through December 30 (with the exception of Christmas Day,) the event will take place a full five days longer than in previous years.

The reimagined show, appropriately wrapped like a present, will feature a fanciful kinetic light presentation on the Atlantis North Lawn. Beginning at 5 p.m. each evening, the inspired production will feature jaw-dropping surprises and a rainbow of colors and special effects second only to the planets, comets and stars in the galaxy.

“Our Holidays in Space celebration gets better and better each year and 2018 is no exception,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “It’s an exciting time for space exploration with the recent 60th anniversary of NASA, and the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Moon landing and our holiday season here is designed to share our pride and excitement.”

Also new this year will be a holiday-themed kids activity area in the Atlantis West Pavilion. Families can look forward to hours of fun, with special kids’ activities offered from December 26 – 30.
