A tradition for many families, visitors come from all over the region during the holiday season to visit the Aquarium, shop and spend time together at the beach. The entire Aquarium will be adorned with holiday decorations, a large Christmas tree and thousands of colorful lights.

“Our goal with Oddwater is to create a fresh, illuminative, and somewhat odd look that we haven't seen before,” said Jim Burke, Aquarium Director of Animal Husbandry. “The concept originated well over a year ago from two members of the Animal Husbandry Team, Kevin Clifford and Warren Shead, and evolved into an extraordinary mixed media exhibit.”
