Holiday Laser

November–January 2018

The Planetarium's family holiday spectacular returns! Favorite holiday songs play back-to-back, choreographed with dancing laser light among the stars of the Planetarium sky. Produced at the Strasenburgh Planetarium, it's a Rochester tradition for family, friends, and out-of-town visitors.
