Ferdinand the Penguin visits WXXV to promote Mississippi Aquarium holiday offerings

Who needs Santa and his reindeer when you’ve got the Mississippi Aquarium and penguins?

Ferdinand the Penguin stopped by WXXV to help announce an exciting new program and spread the word about holiday events happening at the aquarium.

Along with extended hours, $12.25 admission after 3, and diving Santa and his elf, you can now have your holiday picture taken with a dolphin or penguin. Speaking of penguins, the aquarium is starting a penguin encounter.

Tickets go on sale December 15th. Diana Major with the Mississippi Aquarium said, “In January 2022, we’re going to be doing a penguin encounter where people can meet the penguins up close and personal, get a personalized experience with them. An animal care specialist will be there to talk about the penguins, African penguins, especially their conservation efforts. We’ve had them out around Christmas, but people haven’t been able to meet them up close one on one, personal so this program will be an add on experience where they get to do that.”

You can visit msaquarium.org and check the calendar for more information about their events.
