Weekdays 10AM-3PM

If you’re going to the Gasparilla Children’s Parade this Saturday… make sure you get those beads, because they can get you some free stuff!

What do you do with all the beads you get from Gasparilla?  I remember stuffing them in a box in my closet…eventually, I think I’ve sold a bunch at a garage sale or just donated them.

Well…The Florida Aquarium is encouraging people going to Gasparilla parades in Tampa this year to help protect the environment and recycle their beads.    A lot of those beads end up in the bay can be harmful to the environment and the marine life that call the bay home, so people attending the parades, you need to be careful and keep the beads out of the water.

To help inspire people, The Florida Aquarium is offering discounted and free adminission to those who bring their beads to the aquarium!!

“Keep the Beads Out of the Bay” promotion, anyone who brings 10 pounds of beads to the aquarium will receive $10 off one general admission ticket.

Those who bring 30 pounds or more will get free admission.

The offer runs through January 27.

Now that’s a good deal!!!
