Holiday Under the Peaks
You probably know that a group of fish is called a school. But did you know that a group of stingrays is called a fever? Frogs? An army. Butterflies? A flutter. And owls? A parliament. Whatever you call your group of loved ones, the holidays are a great time to spend with them at the Tennessee Aquarium. Guests are invited to meet a waddle of penguins, a shiver of sharks and a smack of jellyfish during Holidays Under the Peaks - November 22nd to January 6th. Aquarium educators and animal experts will deliver daily programs to help connect visitors to some of nature’s most wonderful gifts.
A company of parrots can be found during special scheduled programs in Ranger Rick’s Backyard Safari along with a menagerie of native and exotic creatures guests may encounter throughout the day. SCUBA Claus will make his underwater appearances at the River Giants exhibit alongside some of the world’s largest freshwater fish species. Look for the jolly old elf weekends 11 am from Nov. 23rd - Dec. 22nd. Tennessee Aquarium, 1 Broad St. (800) 262-0695, tnaqua.org
