Amid the world competition occurring in Pyeongchang, South Korea, there also are medals to be won Feb. 17-19 during “Strive for the Gold Weekend” at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.
The Aquarium’s special offering for the three-day President’s Day Weekend, “Strive for the Gold” invites guests – especially children – to take part in bonus activities, some of which test their athleticism in comparison to those of aquatic animals. Can you hop farther than a frog? Can you leap as high as a seal?
Plus, grab a stick for the chance to shoot a puck past an “octopus” goalie.
Complete all the challenges and earn a “Strive for the Gold” medal. And be sure to bring your camera for a fun “photo op” at the medals-ceremony podium.
All “Strive for the Gold Weekend” activities are free with Aquarium admission. For full details, go online to www.maritimeaquarium.org.
