Attendees are also invited to talk with divers, meet the penguin keepers, and enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at where meals are prepared for all the animals in the Aquarium.

The party will also feature Louisiana music stars including Big Easy Award recipient Mia Borders, “Gumbo Rock” band Urban Gypsies, and live island music by Ray’s Island Sounds. There will also be inflatables for the children, face painting by Chris Matthews, visits by all the Audubon Nature Institute outreach vehicles, arts and crafts by the Aquarium’s Education Department and much more.

Attendants are invited to watch Disney’s animated musical comedy, Tangled free of charge at Entergy IMAX® Theatre and also enjoy gift shop items and refreshments at a 20% discount.
