#FestivalOfTheSEAson at @GeorgiaAquarium

Yesterday morning we had the chance to join Georgia Aquarium in waking the big man himself, Santa Claus, from his long winter's nap! Turns out that an icy cold blast from a hundred or so snowballs is all it takes!

Of course while we were there, we stuck around for the Festival of the SEAson! We all know the holidays are not just about checking off items on a wish list. For many parents, crossing off the list of annual moments can be an overwhelming fete.

Georgia Aquarium’s Festival of the SEAson creates a magical atmosphere where families can find the experiences they are seeking and get back to the reason for the season. Opening on Saturday, November 22, this annual event marks the limited-time return of offerings that have become tradition for many families in Atlanta and throughout the Southeast. Here are five exceptional experiences visitors can cross of their list during this month-long celebration at one of the world’s largest aquariums.

1. Capture Classic Photos With Santa

Break away from the mundane mall photo and capture the annual classic with a seaside St. Nick. Whether you are posting it for all of social media to see or sending to the grandparents, an iconic photo with Santa at Georgia Aquarium will provide a unique experience.

2. Treasure Family Traditions

Holiday traditions are essential, and there is a reason why we have kept them as a part of our lives for so many centuries. Simply put, they add meaning to our lives and enhance a sense of belonging. In the heart of downtown Atlanta, guests can create new traditions during Festival of the SEAson, come face-to-face with Santa as he dons his SCUBA Claus wetsuit plunging into one of the world’s largest aquatic habitats and experience the holidays at surrounding parks and attractions.

3. Create Magical Moments

Santa is tired from his long journey from the North Pole. Kids will laugh, sing and even participate in a snowball fight in an attempt to help the Elves Wake Up Santa and get the holidays started. For a limited time this holiday season, fantasy meets reality as the Weeki Wachee Mermaids grace guests with their holiday-themed, underwater showcase accompanied by meet and greet with story time and photo opportunities.

4. Check A Few Names Off The Christmas List


Take the stress out of holiday shopping and give a gift with a wow factor. A memorable animal encounter, adopt a whale shark or choose from holiday and animal-themed selections in two onsite gift shops. Access around-the-clock shopping in your PJ’s at Georgia Aquarium’s online

5. Revel in Holiday Lights and Seasonal Songs

Every hour, Georgia Aquarium transforms into a winter wonderland with the Holidazzle light show. Classic tunes fill the atrium for all to sing along. New this year, a Symphony of Snow parade will surround and delight guests with renditions of their favorite holiday classics every

Cirque du Soleil's #Amaluna at Atlantic Station (Enter to win!)



Celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2014, Cirque du Soleil brings a new show to Atlanta! Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Amaluna's Tony Award-winning Show Director, Diane Paulus, drew from a series of classical influences when creating the concept of the show; including tales from Greek and Norse mythology, Mozart's The Magic Flute, and Shakespeare's The Tempest.

We got the opportunity to check out Amaluna on opening night in Atlanta and the show did not disappoint! With lots of heart stopping action and beautiful artistry, Cirque du Soleil is always one of the most anticipated shows in Atlanta and it's no wonder!

Amaluna's adventure under the big blue and yellow tent features 46 Cirque artists and the focus in this show is all on the women including the all female band! A sweet and familiar love story is intertwined in the heart of the story here and is told through breathtaking imagery. Each artist is responsible for their own makeup before each show. A body scan is used to make a detailed mold of their faces with the intricate designs cut out so they can be sponged or sprayed onto them instead of hand painted, allow for both continuity and consistency!

Experience Amaluna from Cirque du Soleil, now playing under the iconic blue and yellow big top at Atlantic Station. Save 20% on a Family 4 Pack and take an adventure to an island governed by goddesses. CLICK HERE and buy your tickets today.
