PRA Group Sponsors a Winter Wonderland at the Virginia Aquarium

Holiday Family Festivities for Two Nights in December

Originally posted by the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center

NORFOLK, Va. – The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center is decking the halls and transforming into a winter wonderland during Holi-Rays! Come dressed in your holiday best or festive pajamas for an evening of family fun on December 16 and 17 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Meet Santa and Mrs. Claus in the workshop as they prepare presents with the elves, or wave hello as jolly ol’ Saint Nick scuba dives under the sea. Help the grouchy Grump find his holiday spirit through the power of recycling. Decorate an ornament using recycled material, in keeping with the Aquarium’s mission to inspire conservation. Candy canes galore, there will be much for all to explore!

Tickets are $25.95, and members receive a 50% discount. Online registration and timed tickets are required due to limited capacity. Tickets will not be available at the door. Children two years old and under get in free. A paying adult must accompany children. Find tickets here.
