Maggie Miller and her sister Nikki pelt Darrell Dixon repeatedly in the ball pit.

The City Museum downtown hosted a free party on Wednesday night as a thank-you to the scores of petitioners who rallied (on the Internet, at least) to keep the museum/playground open. Rumors of the museum's possible closure due to injuries swirled for weeks before being stamped out at the party Wednesday night. Photos by Brent Holzapfel.
