Mystic Aquarium is offering relief from the winter doldrums with its Tropical Sunsation series, a variety of activities and events for kids of all ages, February 16ththrough 18th from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Families are invited to February vacation in Mystic with this three-day tropical staycation, which will feature live steel-drum music from Pan Man Aaron Cote, hula dancing performances and lessons by Kaiholunie dancers, diving mermaids, tropical crafts, and so much more.
No trip to Mystic Aquarium is complete without a visit with fan-favorite animals, like the belugas. For a special treat this holiday weekend, guests will want to stop by the Arctic Coast exhibit to meet Natasha, a beluga that arrived at Mystic recently.
Staying with the tropical theme guests can enjoy Mystic Aquarium’s unparalleled collection of tropical fish, colorful corals and the colony of 31 African penguins. All indoor and outdoor exhibits will be open. It’s a short trip, long on excitement.
