Butterfly Winter Wonderland – Dec. 16-17, 22-23, 26-29

There are plenty of breathtaking sights to behold at Butterfly Wonderland’s annual holiday celebration. The facility glitters and gleams with gorgeous silver and blue décor and luminaries, and a lush Noble Fir tree stands tall in the lobby, greeting all who enter. To add to the magic, several living angel statues are located throughout the facility.

In addition, those who visit during Winter Wonderland weekends can enjoy live music, take keepsake photos, purchase commemorative ornaments and much more. All the festivities are included with general admission, so don’t miss out!

Sea Trek Santa – Dec. 2 - Jan. 6

How does Santa Claus relax before Christmas Eve? By scuba diving, of course! Come meet the big man himself during this limited time event in the OdySea Aquarium.

If you’ve never tried the Sea Trek activity, now’s the time to do it! Swim around with Ol’ Saint Nick and the 30,000 other colorful creatures that inhabit this interactive tank. The aquarium is offering discount pricing for the holidays, too, so secure your tickets now!

Chill Fest – Dec. 21 - Jan. 6

Chill Fest is hands-down the coolest event of the year! OdySea’s outdoor courtyard transforms into a miniature North Pole, complete with train rides, fire pits, marshmallow roasting stations, live entertainment, winter special effects and an ice rink! On select days, the kiddos can even skate alongside their favorite holiday mascots and receive complimentary lessons from real pros.

Admission is only $5 per person, which includes skate rental and 30 minutes of skate time. Keep in mind, some activities require an extra fee!
