Shark Summer Extended at Newport Aquarium

Head out to the Newport Aquarium this weekend to take advantage of Shark Summer before it swims away!

(Feature Photo: Celebrate the Newport Aquarium’s 20th anniversary, and feast your eyes on giant six- to eight-foot tall sand sculptures throughout!)

Grab your baby sharks (doo doo doo doo) and head to Newport Aquarium (1 Aquarium Way, Newport) for extended Shark Summer festivities.

Through Sunday, Sept. 8, celebrate the Aquarium’s 20th anniversary with custom sand sculptures created by International grandmaster Damon Farmer. These playful sand sculptures were made using 14.5 tons of sand and are located throughout the aquarium and feature dozens of playful sea animal friends.
