Mystic Aquarium Family Winterfest
December 26, 2017 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am
It’s the most wonderful time of the year where Mystic Aquarium sparkles with holiday cheer through the New Year! Join us one day or many and delight in the magic of the season with different activities every day. Check out all that we have planned for you!
Celebrate the days leading up to the New Year with live local entertainment including area favorites, Steve Elci & Friends.
Watch talented artists chop, chisel and chip away at massive chunks of ice to create frozen sculptures then take your own cool photo next to the finished masterpiece.
Santa’s on vacation! Get your picture taken with him and write the jolly man a thank you to show him how much you appreciate all the holiday cheer he has spread and say hello to his elves frolic underwater as they interact with all their friends at Winterfest.
Toast to the New Year while beluga’s swim in the background! Celebrate the start of 2018 with a complimentary cider bubbly toast.
Take a piece of Winterfest home with you! Let your creativity shine as you craft a spectacular snowflake masterpiece that will remind you of all the fun you had with us.
Get your ticket to watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 4-D, with friends and family all December!
Plus, when you visit us on Saturday or Sunday, you can meet the most famous reindeer of all, Rudolph, and his snowy friend Bumble as they visit the Aquarium! Participate in setting up a turtle tank.
