The Florida Aquarium Brings Back Snow Days With a New Twist

December 16, 2020
Florida Aquarium


Tampa, Fla. – The Florida Aquarium is safely bringing back one of Tampa Bay’s most popular Holiday traditions, Snow Days, with new and safe ways to play. From December 26-31st, guests can engage in a snowball-throwing contest on the Aquarium’s rooftop. Guests will be able to toss snowballs at “sea monster” targets, in order to fight ocean pollution. These targets will be made up of items that cause ocean pollution such as plastic bags or bottles.

This event is a great opportunity for kids and adults alike to enjoy real snow in Florida! This event will also feature real snow for guests to create their own snowman or snow creation. Snow will be falling on the outdoor plaza, and there will be socially distant dance parties where guests can enjoy the snow while listening to Holiday classics.

Visitors can enjoy Snow Days with extended hours at the Aquarium all week long from 9:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.

The Aquarium has many other Holiday events to make the Holiday season special. Visit socially distant Santa at the Aquarium on December 19th from 11 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Santa will be inside of a “snow globe” which allows families to safely visit with Santa. Join us for Ugly Sweaters Under the Sea presented by Corona, for a 21+ night at the Aquarium on Friday, December 18. Guests will receive a Corona beverage or Holiday cocktail on us, will have all access to the Aquarium at night, and will have a snowball throwing contest on the Aquarium rooftop.
