A Whale Of A Weekend Planned For Santa Monica Pier Aquarium

Celebrate the annual migration of the Pacific gray whale during “Whale of a Weekend,” this Saturday and Sunday at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium for whale-related activities.

From 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day, visitors can feel the heft of a whale rib, check out bristly baleen, and try on a layer of (simulated) whale blubber for warmth.

Children of all ages can have their faces painted and make a whale visor to take home. Learn more interesting facts about these gentle giants through story time, film screenings, and a host of activities organized by Brandon Scott, creator of Cool Cups, a gelatin-like snack visitors can sample.

Aquarium naturalists, along with representatives of the American Cetacean Society, will staff a wildlife observation station at the west end of the Santa Monica Pier.

The aquarium is located at 1600 Ocean Front Walk.

The event is free, however $5 is the suggested donation.
