For four Fridays nights this July and August, “Sips at Sunset” will offer families and guests a chance to celebrate the start of the weekend by taking in live music while enjoying the company of beluga whales, penguins, seals, dinosaurs and reptiles, and all 7,000+ animals that call the Aquarium home.


It all gets underway this Friday, July 16th @ 6:30pm-8:30pm, and will run again at the same time on July 23rd, August 6th, and August 20th.
