TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Great Scott! We're back to the future! 

Wednesday, October 21, 2015 is the date Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in Back to the Future Part II.

To celebrate Back to the Future Day, the MagLab is hosting "How Time McFlies."

The event looks at tech predictions from the 1989 movie and what 1.21 gigawatts really means. There's also hoverboard races and a DeLorean derby.

Organizers are also putting together a Back to the Future costume contest, so they say be sure to "put on your puffy vest and hoverboard over to the National MagLab to celebrate the discoveries and innovations of the future!"

"How Time McFlies" is Wednesday, October 21, 2015, of course. It's at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (1800 E. Paul Dirac Drive). There's no cost to take part, and all are invited.
