PARRSBORO It was a night to remember for several youths, both on the screen and off. Two nights, in fact.

Fundy Geological Museum held a Night at the Museum to kick off its busy March break programs last weekend, first busing children to the Vogue Cinema in Sackville, N.B. to see the movie Night at the Museum, and then returning for their own night at the museum a sleepover with the dinosaurs.

PARRSBORO It was a night to remember for several youths, both on the screen and off. Two nights, in fact.

Fundy Geological Museum held a Night at the Museum to kick off its busy March break programs last weekend, first busing children to the Vogue Cinema in Sackville, N.B. to see the movie Night at the Museum, and then returning for their own night at the museum a sleepover with the dinosaurs.

It was really good, said Kirsten Willigar, of the movie starring Ben Stiller, Robin Williams and more. Were having fun.

Kirsten was one of about 15 girls sleeping over at the museum on Saturday night, following the boys, who had their night on Friday.

The weekend was expected to include students from Sackville as well but ended up not getting any participants from there. Instead, several girls from Tatamagouche and Truro joined the Parrsboro students on Saturday.

The kids all had a great time, said museum program coordinator Pat Welton. Weve already had calls from some of the parents saying theyre looking forward to next year.

Welton was uncertain as to what they will do for next year, but said sleepovers are a popular feature of the March Break programs.

She thanked all who assisted with the weekend activity, including Vogue Cinema manager Jeff Coates. Meanwhile, a busy week of activities continues at the museum.
