This Friday night bash will take place on the capitol square in downtown Madison. Explore dozens of venues at your own pace. Museums, pubs, restaurants, stores and more will host #WiSciFest events. Look for the festive lights and balloons to find science fest events. Venues will host informal science talks or demonstrations, tastings, stargazing, hands-on activities and more. Don’t miss Beesly the Science Festival mascot at the Pollination Parade starting at 7:30p from the Children’s Museum.
