2016 Time Travelers Ball
The Time Travelers Ball: Equinox Adventures welcomed guests from across time on March 19, 2016, at the Museum of Discovery. Guests enjoyed a reception in the museum lobby and café with hors d'oeuvres, desserts, and a cash bar. At 8 p.m., guests entered the museum exhibit space to dance among the exhibits as the Colorado Swing Cats band played. Throughout the evening, guests were invited to step in to the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater to watch space-inspired movies.
Costumes were optional, and many guests took advantage of the opportunity to don fun and elaborate costumes. Several lucky attendees were winners of the costume contests. A full-size Doctor Who–style "TARDIS" time machine served as a photobooth and was a big hit! The equinox's reputation as being the best time-travel date seemed true on this auspicious evening. Proceeds from the ball go to PLF's mission to preserve, restore, protect, and interpret the architectural and cultural heritage of the Fort Collins area.
A complete album of photos from the 2016 ball is posted on a separate page.
