Ignite the Night: Hamptons Holidays

February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Ignite the Night at Mississippi Children's Museum

On February 9, 2019 from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. Mississippi Children’s Museum Partners are inviting grown-ups to take over the museum! Patrons will be headed seaside at MCM during Ignite the Night: Hamptons Holiday. Don’t have a helicopter or weekend estate? Dress your most preppy summer chic, and we’ll bring all the charm and style of Long Island’s East End to Jackson! On this special evening, guests can bid on swanky silent auction items, enjoy the summer colony’s finest culinary offerings, play to win at whimsical lawn games, and get a taste of the New York Elite’s most luxurious night life. It may be February outside, but nothing says summer like a night out in the Hamptons!

Every February, adults are given permission to play after hours at the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) during its signature fundraising event, Ignite the Night. This annual, adults-only evening has a whimsical and exciting new theme each year. Each gallery comes to life with festive food, mesmerizing music, and amusing activities like photo booths with quirky costumes, mysterious guests, and creative cocktails. Hosted by the Mississippi Children’s Museum Partners, a group of volunteers and donors who support the museum, this is not your typical party. It is imaginative, entertaining, and, most importantly, fun!

By supporting Ignite the Night, you are helping the museum in its mission to provide unparalleled experiences that ignite a thirst for discovery, knowledge, and learning in all children. Proceeds from the event provide critical funding for the museum’s operations including meeting ongoing exhibit and program needs.

For tickets, visit Ignite the Night.
