Carolers: International carolers decked out in astronaut flight suits will perform traditional holiday songs including favorites like “Silver Bells,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Let it Snow,” and “Feliz Navidad”.

Decorations: A towering ISS-themed Christmas tree is adorned with colorful bulbs and 600 miniature flags from the 15 ISS partner countries. The International Space Station mural will provide information about the holiday customs of each partner country.

With the exclusion of ice skating and photo prints, all activities for “Holidays in Space” are included with admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Ticket prices are $43 plus tax for adults and $33 plus tax for children ages 3 to 11. For more information, call 877-313-2610 or visit
