The Oregon Coast Aquarium (OCAq) invites all to celebrate the season at Sea of Lights: one of the coast’s most unique holiday light displays. Sea of Lights will illuminate OCAq from 5-8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings this December. Aquarium members can attend at no cost, with general admission tickets priced at $10 per person or free with same-day paid admission. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
On the second weekend (Dec. 8 and 9), tickets will be just $5 for those who bring a canned food donation to benefit the Food Share of Lincoln County. This family-friendly event allows visitors to view Aquarium galleries and exhibits in a new light, and each weekend features a different attraction.
Santa will be present to pose for photos and listen to wishes until Christmas, after which the Snow Queen will make a special appearance. Guests can enjoy live music from the Oregon Coast Recorder Society on Friday, Dec. 8, and from the Pacific Coast Wind Ensemble on Saturday, Dec. 16. Pack a pair of mittens and chart a course for an unforgettable holiday experience at Sea of Lights. Find a full schedule of events, updates, and tickets online at aquarium.org/sea-of-lights.
