There's no better way to celebrate the return of First Fridays to the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4400 or www.slsc.org) than with Turtle Power! That's right, the 25th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (or Hero Turtles, to overseas fans) wrecks the nation this month. Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello show up in their party bus (for real) at 6 p.m. Friday, June 5, and then perform mixed martial arts demonstrations, pose for photos with fans and dance their half shells off. As an added bonus, admission to all OMNIMAX films is only $5 after 5 p.m. And don't worry if you can't make it on Friday night; the Turtles will hang around the science center all day on Saturday, June 6.
Fri., June 5; Sat., June 6, 2009
