EVENT DESCRIPTION

Mermaid Mondays, the after-hours event featuring real mermaids swimming in the Aquarium’s Red Sea Tunnel, begins on April 8 and continues each Monday through April 29. The mermaids return with even more friends for special encounters all over the Bay & Ocean Pavilion. In addition, King Neptune will greet guests and activities will be spread throughout the Aquarium.
Guests will also be able to visit with a mermaid at the Ray Touch Pool, Norfolk Canyon Aquarium, and a mermaid at the Chesapeake Bay Aquarium. This year’s event also includes story time with a mermaid, a mermaid puppet show, live musical performances, and other activities and photo opportunities in the Aquarium’s Bay & Ocean Pavilion.



EVENT SPECIAL NOTICES AND INFORMATION

To enable full viewing of the mermaids by guests, strollers are discouraged for this event.

Reservations for this limited engagement are required.

Any suggestions on what to do with straws that were purchased prior to all the info about how bad they are came out? I have a bunch of smoothie straws and bendable drinking straws that I would like to dispose of properly, if possible.

Has the aquarium stopped serving straws in its food bar?

Gabriella Edwards lets do it

Some people need straws to be able to drink at all. I'd be totally supportive of moving away from plastic and making biodegradable paper straws, or even edible straws.
