Festival of the SEAson 2016

Festival of the SEAson makes a splash during the holidays!

December 9, 2016

Written by Erin Horne, Public Relations Intern

 It’s finally December, and Georgia Aquarium has become fully submerged in the holiday season! We’ll be celebrating our underwater holiday extravaganza, Festival of the SEAson, throughout the month of December with a wide variety of events appealing to visitors of all ages.

SCUBA Claus:
Everyone knows that Santa’s a talented guy (it’s not easy to deliver presents to approximately 822 households per second, after all), but he finally gets the chance to show off one of his many talents when he SCUBA dives in our Ocean Voyager habitat! To find out when you can see SCUBA Claus during our Festival of the SEAson, click here


Sips Under the Sea: Jingle Mingle:
During the day, you can expect Georgia Aquarium to be filled with excited guests and students of all ages! Looking though for an exclusive adult-only event? That’s where Sips Under the Sea comes in! Adults over the age of 21 are invited to don their holiday finest and join us for a chance to view Georgia Aquarium in all of its after-hours serenity. To purchase tickets, click here.

Breakfast with Santa:
Is it really the holiday season if you haven’t had an amazing holiday brunch? Enter Breakfast with Santa, the festive feast you’ve been searching for. To purchase tickets for this event, click here.

Visit with Santa Claus:
If you haven’t already noticed, Santa likes to frequent Georgia Aquarium (and who could blame him?). Find a date that works best for you and get your present requests in before December 24. If you don’t get what you want this year, you have nobody to blame but yourself! 

If food, drinks and SCUBA Claus aren’t incentive enough to check out Festival of the SEAson, there are even more holiday celebrations scattered throughout the month! We invite you to discover holiday traditions from around the world on December 20 at our Holidays Across the Seas event, and the 4-D theater will be showing the classic holiday film THE POLAR EXPRESS™. Our exciting Holidazzle light show plays daily, and you can see A Symphony of Snow, a live entertainment experience, every weekend during Festival of the SEAson. Additionally, be sure to catch our Hanukkah candle lightings every day from December 24 to January 1, as well as our tree lightings which occur daily at 10:30 a.m. Celebrate this season the right way and begin new traditions with your Georgia Aquarium family!
