It ’snot over yet!
But all is not lost if you miss it. On Sept. 8, the museum celebrates its Bubblefest, with Bubblemania performances in the museum at 10:30 a.m., noon and 1:30 and 3 p.m. Bubbles small enough to scrub with and big enough to stand in are all part of the fun, accompanied by musical performances, in a tent in Martin Luther King Park. The fest comes with museum admission; Bubblemania shows are $1 for members, $3 for nonmembers.
