Calling all Sheddheads: Get there early and it's free!
The Shedd Aquarium is offering free
admission through the month of September. In celebration of its
80th anniversary, the Shedd is welcoming its first 80 guests of
each day with free general admission. These 80 lucky guests will
have the opportunity to explore the original galleries (built in
1930) and visit the Shedd's oldest fish, Granddad, who has held
residence since 1933.
The Shedd is also holding the Share a Memory, Make a Memory
contest through September, which means the aquarium's online
visitors and Facebook friends have a chance to share their
memorable moments to win one of five opportunities to experience a
Penguin Encounter for four as well as a gift certificate to one of
Shedd's restaurants. The deadline for this contest is Sept. 19.
