Holiday events at Atlantic City Aquarium

What Is It: If you're looking for something to do with the kids today, check out the Atlantic City Aquarium. The popular spot in Historic Gardner's Basin has a special holiday program planned for Martin Luther King Day.

What To Expect: The aquarium opens 10 a.m., but the fun really gets going an hour later with the live-diver feeding show: Divers take a dip in the 25,000-gallon main tank to hand-feed the stingrays and other large animals, and talk to the kids in the crowd as they do. At noon and 3 p.m., the visitors themselves can feed the smaller rays in a petting tank, and at 2 p.m., look for the "Exotic Animal Show," which includes a bunch of critters that don't live in water.
