Oregon Coast Aquarium “Sea of Lights”
A celebration of the holiday season will be on show at the Oregon Coast Aquarium for Sea of Lights starting Friday, December 5, and then on every Saturday and Sunday in December.
The Aquarium will immerse visitors with holiday cheer amidst the festive glow of the largest holiday lights display on Oregon’s central coast and pictures with Santa. Under the sea, Submerged Santa will read holiday stories while floating among fishes in the Aquarium’s Coastal Waters Gallery.
The event kicks off with live holiday music and an opportunity to meet Santa in his workshop on December 5 through 7 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Admission is $2 with two items of non-perishable food for Food Share of Lincoln County. Guests may also bring pet food for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter or a new unwrapped children’s toy for the Newport Fire Department’s Holiday Toy Drive in place of a food donation. Entry for those without food or toy donations is $8.00. Admission is free to members, but they are encouraged to bring an item to donate.
Sea of Lights will illuminate the Aquarium until 8:00 p.m. beginning Saturday, December 13 and continuing every Saturday and Sunday in December. Admission to this show of sparkling holiday cheer, including photo opportunities with Santa, is $8.00 after 5:00 p.m. Admission to Sea of Lights is free for Aquarium members.
