Saturday, 12-1, was a very busy day at the Aquarium.
The bull shark left the Aquarium, making it safely to its’ new home at the Oklahoma Aquarium near Tulsa. It is now happily swimming in its’ habitat.
Holiday treats were given to our marine mammals. “Fishcicles” are made by freezing pieces of fish or even possibly lobster in red or green colored water.
The Aquarium took part in the Belmont Shore Christmas Parade, a two mile long hometown parade. It was a cool, windy evening following a rainstorm. Parade watchers lining the sidewalks and median were bundled up against the cold. Our group included the Yellow Submarine with the Sharky riding in the back waving at the crowd. Aquarium staff walked behind the sub carrying “surfboards” depicting our Catch a Wave theme and exhibit.
I get such a good feeling from the very positive crowd reaction to our appearance. I can’t count the number of times someone in the crowd would say how much they loved the Aquarium. You are so close to the parade watchers that you can carry on conversations with them. Our next parade appearance is January 19, 2008 in the Long Beach Martin Luther King Jr. parade. We hope to see you there.
Happy Holidays from Leah
