Halloween Kid's Fest held at Downtown Aquarium

Children gasped and grabbed their parents’ hands as two cylinders of orange-and-purple-colored hydrogen peroxide foamed to the brim and spilled off a stage set up in front of the Downtown Aquarium on Sunday.

The oozing blobs of steaming bubbles slowed, and the kids inched closer to listen to the “mad scientist,” who was fanning away smoke from the “Foam Factory” experiment.

“Do you think that was magic, or was that science?” asked Susan “Symbiosis” Emily, a performer or “scientist” with the international entertainment company Mad Science.
