Wally the Penguin Cheers on a Fun Run

Wally the Penguin watches the Fun Run 2019 - popup

Hugh's Aquarium Views Video Number 89

In the lead up to the Long Beach Marathon, the Aquarium of the Pacific sponsors a fun run that takes the runners through the Aquarium. Wally the Magellanic Penguin put on his Ambassador Animal hat and came down to cheer on the runners as they made the turn to the Pinniped Tunnel. Needless to say, there were a few runners that slowed their pace or stopped completely to get a look at or take a quick selfie with the friendly penguin. Wally accommodated all.

Aviculturalist Sara brought Wally down from the penguin exhibit just before the fun run. You can tell from the video that Wally enjoys riding in his little penguin cart and also spending quality time with his caretaker Sara.
