Pacific Islander Festival at the Aquarium of the Pacific Plus #Giveaway

It's No Secret We LOVE the Aquarium of the Pacific!

 
Summer is Here and so is the Pacific Islander Festival at the Aquarium of the Pacific!
 
 

PC Aquarium of the Pacific

 
Some of the best summer fun is made with family. One of our most favorite places to visit is the Aquarium of the Pacific. There is so much to see, do, touch and learn... you can spend hours and leave wanting to come back for more.

We are huge fans of educational fun! At the Aquarium of the Pacific they too are huge on learning while exploring. Our oceans have so much to discover and it is wonderful that the AOP brings our Sealife to us in this amazing way.
 
To kick off Summer, the Aquarium of the Pacific brings back the ever so beautiful Pacific Islander Festival, to be held June 3rd and 4th!
