What a Birthday Bash!



Approximately 3,000 visitors celebrated the Aquarium’s 45th birthday the weekend of June 12-13th. It all began with the reading of proclamations declaring Saturday June 12th as “Aquarium of Niagara Day” in the City of Niagara Falls and Niagara County.

Dignitaries on hand included Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster, City Councilwoman Kristin Grandinetti, William Ross, chairman of the Niagara County legislature, state Assemblywoman Francine Del Monte, and representatives from Senator Antoine Thompson’s office, Congresswoman Louise Slaughter’s office, and the New York State Parks.

For this special occasion, admission fees were discounted both days. Forty-five Aquarium memberships were sold for $19.65, way below their usual cost.

Inside the Aquarium, the Hershey moose gave out ice cream samples and Beaker, the Aquarium’s penguin mascot, mingled with the crowd. Also participating in the party event were Carmen Presti’s Primate Sanctuary, the New York Power Authority and the Buffalo Museum of Science. There was face painting, crafts and coloring sheets for the youngsters and every 45th person to visit received a painting by either a sea lion or penguin.

After each sea lion demonstration, visitors sang “Happy Birthday to the Aquarium.”
