Fiesta del Oceano
October 7, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
We’re kicking off Hispanic heritage month with a Fiesta del Oceano! You’re invited to celebrate the flair of different cultures on Saturday, October 7th while experiencing the thrill of a visit to Mystic Aquarium!
Dance to live music by local favorites Grupo Tentacion as they perform different genres of Latin American music like the salsa, merengue, bachata or cumbia. You can even learn some saucy dance moves during a lesson from the band! Then, make your own colorful fish print that is as vibrant as the Hispanic culture. Pick your stamp from a collection of fish found around the world, slather on some vivacious paint and make your own custom print to take home and remember all the fun at Fiesta del Oceano! Plus, indulge in some delicious Latin cuisine provided by one of the best food trucks in the state of Connecticut, Dee’s Flavors!
Discover animals from around the world like the fierce American alligator, the endangered African penguin, the vibrant poison dart frog and so many others. Explore the most extreme environments on Earth in Exploration: Wild! Witness the natural talents of our California sea lions in a complimentary show in our Foxwoods Marine Theater. Enjoy live feeding sessions where you’ll learn about amazing adaptations and discover cool facts about belugas, seals, penguins and more.
Fiesta del Oceano is free for Aquarium members and with general admission.
