The Aquarium's Holiday kickoff!

The Holiday Treats for the Animals festival kicks off Aquarium Holidays. Santa Diver will be delivering an ocean of gifts to the Aquarium of the Pacific for its animals, including penguins, sea otters, seals, sea lions, lorikeets, and fish. Aquarium Holidays (December 5-23) features special holiday décor, holiday shopping, snowfall in the Great Hall, and appearances by Santa Diver and the Aquarium characters in their holiday outfits. On weekends the Aquarium will have a snow play area, photos with Santa, and Hanukkah storytelling with opportunities to play dreidel.
