Caroling With The Fishes Is Sunday

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

Caroling with the Fishes will be held Sunday from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Tennessee Aquarium. 

The galleries will be decked with the sounds of season-including flutes, voices, strings, and Dan Landrum on the hammered dulcimer. Children can visit with Santa and take home a photo for a nominal fee while enjoying holiday goodies. The Aquarium Gift Shop will remain open for holiday shopping with additional discounts. Coffee and cookies, gift boxes, and shipping will be available. Traditional family caroling with the Metro Musicians in the auditorium concludes this night.

There will also be a screening of the Polar Express IMAX 3D.  Guests will be "grasping at falling snowflakes, ducking as the train screeches into their lap and feeling the howl of the steam whistle via state-of-the-art digital surround sound." This special screening is optional and is an additional fee.
