The mirrors, colored shapes, and beautiful symmetrical patterns of kaleidoscopes have inspired this gala celebration featuring Arts Afire Gallery, the Inventors Hall of Fame, and the musicians of Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic under the baton of Maestro Ulysses S. James. 

The evening begins with a stunning exhibition of decorative kaleidoscopes and concludes with a performance of enchanted and enchanting music from films including Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. 

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office will also be featuring an exhibit of patents based on Magic and Illusion along with the Kaleidoscope exhibit. The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (located in the Carlyle neighborhood of Old Town Alexandria and within walking distance of the King Street Metro Station) serves as the unique setting for this event that your whole family will love.
