This weekend you can chill out with a delicious treat and a couple of cool birds.
The Mississippi Aquarium is teaming up with Pop Brothers to give you the chance to get up close and personal with some penguins.
For $10 you will get a Pop Brother popsicle and a picture with a penguin taken by Snapparazzi. A portion of the proceeds goes towards supporting Mississippi Aquarium’s conservation efforts.
News 25 spoke with officials at Pop Brothers and the Aquarium and a special guest even joined in today. Ric Urban with the Mississippi Aquarium said, “One of the great things about partnering up with the Pop Brothers is that we are all about community. We have three pillars at the aquarium: community, conservation, and education, and working with Pop Brothers to promote penguin conservation is a great opportunity. ”
This Sunday’s event will be at the train depot in Gulfport from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be two other events held on the 18th at the Bay St. Louis Pop Brothers location and on the 25th at the Ocean Springs Pop Brothers location.
