Treat your "World's Greatest" dad to an "Out of This World" adventure!? This Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18, dads and granddads will receive free admission to Barlow Planetarium shows when they are accompanied by a (paying) child or grandchild.

Karen Klamczynski, director of the Barlow Planetarium, said, “Did you know the brightest ‘star” in the June sky represents a famous dad? Come to one of our shows this Sunday and find out who that ‘special’ dad is!”

Visitors to the Barlow’s shows are sure to enjoy the special paternal stories that will be included in the shows on June 18th. There will be different stories included in each show. Additionally, everyone will get a thrill with a special 3-D presentation on the planetarium dome in each show as a musical tribute to fathers.

The Barlow Planetarium is located on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley, 1478 Midway Road in Menasha. For more information about the Father’s Day shows in the Barlow Planetarium, contact the planetarium staff at 920-832-2868 or email barlowplanetarium@uwc.edu.
