Science Spectrum's "Spooky Science Carnival"

One of Lubbock's largest annual Halloween events, the Spooky Science Carnival at the Science Spectrum, is back again for another exciting year of family friendly "spooky, not scary" fun!  In addition to the traditional Halloween carnival games and activities, this year's event features an all new act that promises to have carnival goers "creeped-out", laughing hysterically, and magically mesmerized all in one show!

Master snake handler and illusionist Daryl Sprout of Snake Encounters from Dallas is bringing his amazing collection of "trained" snakes and other creepy critters to star in this one-of-a-kind Spooky Snakes and Magic Show.
