Creative Discovery Museum will be a part of the 2012 Riverbend Festival by participating in several festivities during the 9 day event.
Today and next Friday, science will come alive as Creative Discovery Museum showcases a liquid nitrogen demonstration entitled, “Fire and Ice Science Show,” on the Volkswagen Stage at Riverbend. Each performance will begin at 7:15 p.m. and will feature Lady Ice and Fire Man. Children and families will be awed as the combination creates a loud, but thrilling “boom” and huge geyser comprised of steam and water.
Later, Creative Discovery Museum will welcome Sol Driven Train, a music group performing children’s songs, for part of Riverbend Unplugged.

Since that time, the band has been a favorite with younger audiences at Museums and festivals around the country.
