Awesome Rocket City Adventure Party Under A Rocket
This post is Awesome Rocket City Adventure Party Under A Rocket. It covers a party I attended during a travel conference at the US Space and Rocket Center.
I attended the TBEX conference with connected bloggers and other travel writers with vendors and travel providers for a week of networking, education and fun.
During the conference, there were three celebrations. The first celebration was a party in a lumberyard. The second party was a Party Under a Rocket at the US Rocket and Space Center!
Check out all the great activities and attractions in Huntsville, Alabama.
Party Under a Rocket
The second night celebration took place at the US Rocket and Space Center, which is the home to Space Camp where your kids (or kid at heard adults) can be an astronaut for a week and train to fly the Space Shuttle.
The US Rocket and Space Center is an affiliate of Smithsonian and it has a Saturn Rocket outside near the entrance, as well as a model of the Space Shuttle with solid rocket boosters and main tank on the grounds outside the center.
Inside you find another complete Saturn rocket that was turned horizontal and attached to the ceiling overhead.
The celebration took place directly under the Saturn Rocket and included dinner and beer and wine.
A full orchestra performed directly under the astronauts capsule at the top of the rocket.

In addition, the actual quarantine RV used by the astronauts after returning from the moon was available that you could walk in.
One of the Apollo Capsules was displayed along with the parachute that brought it safety.

The US Rocket and Space Center featured German food in celebration of the German Scientist and Engineer Werner Von Braun who helped pioneer the rocket industry in Huntsville.
The food included schnitzel with a creamy mushroom sauce, fried chicken, Cole Slaw and some amazing desserts.
The schnitzel was lightly breaded and friend and a large portion was served. The schnitzel was fresh and it had an excellent taste. The schnitzel was topped with a creamy mushroom sauce with an amazing taste.
