STONINGTON, Conn. — The Mystic Aquarium getting in on the holiday fun in a big, big way.
If visitors bring a nonperishable food item to the aquarium on Friday night, they’re going to gain free admission as part of Mystic’s Festival of Lights.
“Not only are we focused on the animals here at Mystic Aquarium, but we're also a people organization, so helping out our community by providing meals to other families within our community. It's just a great way to give back to those less fortunate than us,” said aquarium spokesperson, Kyle Rabeneck.
If guests visit a little bit later in the season between Christmas and New Year’s, families can celebrate Winterfest at the aquarium.
“People don’t really know this but Santa Claus actually vacations here at the Mystic Aquarium, so he will be around here with his diving elves, they really loved to dive,” said Rabeneck.
Families are heading to the Mystic Aquarium this weekend, tickets will start around $30.
