Catch the Penguin Parade with an African Blackfoot Penguin. It’s free and open to the public everyday on the plaza in front of the Newport Aquarium or inside the Aquarium lobby during inclement weather. The Penguins arrive with fanfare suitable for a parade. Much fun is had by all, especially the child selected as the Parade's Grand Marshall. Every day: 10:15 AM.

Follow that by spending an afternoon feeding the lorikeets, meeting biologists, touching the critters and sharks, watching piranhas, sharks and fish being fed, or even taking a behind the scenes tour in the Newport Aquarium. It is open 365 days a year from 10 AM - 6 PM.
