Santa Claus Visits the Penguins
at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas!


Unique Holiday Penguin Feeding by Santa Claus
  Friday, December 21 - Saturday, December 22, 10:30am and 3pm


(New Orleans, La.)- He's making a list and checking it twice.  Gonna find out who's naughty and nice....and because all of the penguins at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas have been good little birds this year, Santa is hand delivering presents to each during the 10:30 am and 3:00 pm feedings at the Penguin Exhibit Friday, December 21 - Saturday, December 22.  This is the second year Audubon Aquarium has organized this special holiday feeding and the penguins are anxiously awaiting  Ole St. Nick!


Visitors are welcome to view the festive feeding behind the viewing glass at the Penguin Exhibit on the second floor of the Aquarium. Families can enjoy watching Santa deliver specially wrapped presents and hand feed the playful group of penguins during this especially lively feeding time. 

"We've been preparing all month for these special holiday feedings," says Senior Aviculturist Tom Dyer. "I've had a chat with Santa Claus and he can't wait to visit our thirty-two penguins and especially wave hello to all the boys and girls celebrating the holidays with Audubon Aquarium."

The holiday penguin feeding is at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm Friday, December 21 through Saturday, December 22.
