Celebrate Aquarium Holidays with our animals as they receive special “fishmas” treats. Meet special guest animals from wildlife rescue and outreach organization Conservation Ambassadors. Take photos with Santa in his traditional attire and watch him swim with the fish as Santa Diver. Festivities include a real snow play area (weather dependent), holiday crafts, snow fall, and even learn about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. See a gingerbread house display, and pick up some great holiday bargains at our 20% off gift store sale.
