Sponsors will have their names or company’s name individually produced on these prominent signs. Sponsors can join the mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer by purchasing a “Signs Of Hope 2018” by contacting Charlotte Epperson, Signs of Hope Coordinator, at (903)724-3430, 2charlieepperson@gmail.com.

Narrated by two-time Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor, “Humpback Whales” is an extraordinary journey into the mysterious world of one of nature’s most awe-inspiring marine mammals. Set in the spectacular waters of Alaska, Hawaii, and the remote islands of Tonga, this ocean adventure offers audiences an up-close look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play, and take care of their young. Captured for the first time with IMAX® 3D cameras, and found in every ocean on earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a slow but remarkable recovery.

Rock ‘n Roll Saturday

Rock ‘n Roll Saturday is fun for the entire family! A performance will be May 18th . Two shows will be presented. “Space Park360” will be shown at 7pm and “Rock on Demand” at 8pm.

“SpacePark360” takes audiences on a wild, immersive ride through the solar system, recreating the experience of amusement park thrill rides – roller coasters, pendulums, inverters, and more. Seen from the rider’s perspective, “SpacePark360” combines full dome technology with thrill rides to create a heart-pounding experience.

“Rock on Demand” fills the entire 40-foot domed theater with vibrant graphics, completely enveloping visitors in a 360-degree view while the 16,000-watt, digital surround sound system plays rock hits ranging from the Beatles and Rolling Stones to The Doors and Aerosmith.

Tickets are $5 for each show. This is fun for the entire family!
