Now that the dinosaurs have left the building, the Museum Center at Union Terminal is getting ready to welcome another group of the long since dead: mummies. To celebrate the opening of Secrets of Egypt, Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science and the OMNIMAX’s Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs, the Museum Center is throwing Pharaohfest Saturday.
From 2-10:30 p.m. you can “party like an Egyptian” with some of the best performers, chefs, designers and artists in the area. There will be a "Cincinnati’s Got Talent!" competition, an Iron Chef-style "Cincy’s Top Future Chef" event, a "Cincy Runway" fashion show with a reprise of the 2009 UC DAAP fashion show and live music from Indie bands like The Kentucky Struts, The Sundresses (pictured), Eclipse and Mia Carruthers & the Retros. Bands start at 6 p.m.
Also look for special guest appearances by Roxanne Qualls, Jean-Robert de Cavel, the Funktastic Bootsy Collins and more.
All activities are free. Get details here.
