COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - EdVenture is starting off its 15th-anniversary celebration with Marvel's Black Panther.

It was a chance for the whole family to enjoy a meet and greet with the popular superhero. The event also included face painting, sidewalk art, and balloon twisters. Some of the kids were even able to step into the lab and learn the science of Vibranium.

It was an opportunity one local mom, Mrs. Solstein, says she was happy to see here in the Midlands.

"The message of the movie and a superhero that looks like him has been really important," Solstein said. "In Columbia, in general, there are great events for kids but something that – I mean Black Panther was a phenomenon, right? It was great worldwide, but for our local community and local museum to embrace that and have this event, it was really important to bring my kids here today."

Black Panther Day turned out to be a big hit in the Midlands. This was a sold-out event.
