May the Fourth 

Join the Shark Side

May 1 

Two scuba divers in a large aquarium each hold lightsabers underwater. They cross the sabers as if in battle. In front of the aquarium with the divers, stands an educator dressed in a brown robe and looking at the camera.A long time ago, in an underwater galaxy far, far away…

When you visit the aquarium, be on the lookout for familiar figurines placed throughout the habitats and exhibits. 

Be sure to snap a picture and tag us in it!
