It wasn’t that long ago that I got to experience the Scarium of the Pacific at Long Beach’s Aquarium of the Pacific. The holiday fun continues with a Winter Holiday Celebration that lasts through December 24th. Kicking off this festive season is the Holiday Treats for the Animals event on December 5-6, 2015.
Get into the holiday spirit early & share the fun as the Aquarium’s animals receive their gifts from Santa Diver. In celebration of the holiday season, Santa Diver will be delivering treats to the Aquarium of the Pacific’s penguins, sea otters, seals, sea lions, birds, fish & other animals during Holiday Treats for the Animals weekend on Saturday and Sunday, December 5-6, 2015.
The animals are not the only ones celebrating! Families can meet and greet penguins up close. Guests can see Santa Diver in action.
You can also take photos with Santa in his traditional attire & holiday costumed characters. The festival will feature Hanukkah storytelling & dreidel activities. Holiday music, crafts, shopping, gingerbread house displays & more will be included in the festivities. To top it all off, snow will fall in the Aquarium’s Great Hall & guests can enjoy a snow play area on the front lawn (weather dependent). The Aquarium Holidays celebration will continue through December 24 with snow falls in the Great Hall, Santa Diver, & character appearances daily, as well as music, penguin walks, visits from Santa & the snow play area on weekends.
Holiday Treats is included with general admission: $28.95 adult (12+), $25.95 senior (62+), $14.95 child (3-11) & free for children under age three and Aquarium members. However I have a special deal for you! Print out the Holiday Treats Flyer 2015 which contains a coupon & receive FREE child admission with paid adult admission. This is a savings of $14.95 (regular child admission)!!
