Camden, NJ – Adventure Aquarium is inviting families throughout the region to dress up in their finest New Year’s Eve attire and head on down to the Camden Waterfront to ring in the New Year “family-style” at the Aquarium’s first annual New Year’s Eve Splash. This special, limited-ticket event promises to deliver amazing animal exhibits and experiences, family-friendly fun including a “Countdown” Dance Party, and of course, breathtaking views of the City of Philadelphia’s fireworks display over the Delaware River at dusk.
