Join us on Thursday, July 4 for a celebration of America’s birthday at our 9th annual Independence Day Splash. The aquarium will be open extended hours until 9:00 PM, then you can make your way to view the beautiful fireworks display over the Camden Waterfront. Fireworks can be seen either outside along the riverfront or in limited standing room inside by the cafe or Rotunda windows or at Hippo Fest Central.
The all-new Flying Fish Beer Garden will be open for you to enjoy a refreshing local craft beer from the Flying Fish Brewing Company. Sit, sip and relax outside with your family and friends and test your skills at some outdoor and table games.
The Marketplace will also be open with a limited menu.
Keep the party going as you have fun and let loose with a live DJ dance party!
