We are inching closer and closer to the opening date of the brand new Mississippi Aquarium.
Over at the construction site for the aquarium, lots of progress is being made. The three sails that will welcome people to the aquarium are going up. The three sails will represent education, conservation, and community.
The entry building also went up, which is the orange building that can be seen from Highway 90.
The opening date for the aquarium will be announced on September 27th at the second annual ‘Splash Bash’ at the Barksdale Pavilion. Mississippi Aquarium CEO/President David Kimmel said, “Splash Bash is going to be great. Not only are we announcing the opening day, which is exciting and it will be really fun for people to know, but also memberships will start. So, people will be able to become members of the aquarium and really invest in the aquarium and learn more about animals through our lecture series.”
More jobs are being posted on the aquarium’s website. Officials say if you are interested in a position check the page often.
