Santa Sightings & More Holiday Fun in Cleveland, OH

Glug, glug, glug! Translated that’s Ho! Ho! Ho! From Scuba Claus, who visits and wishes those coming to the Aquarium this holiday a “Merry FISH-mas!” He does it from inside a 230-gallon tank surrounded by sharks and other salt water creatures.  There are seek-n-find activities for the little ones and scheduled photo shoots with Scuba Santa still in the tank.

And, we probably don’t need to remind you that Santa’s awfully busy this time of year. If you miss him at the Cleveland Aquarium, here are a few added places/events where you might catch and share Christmas wishes with Santa.
