DOH! It looks like Bart Simpson has found a way to sneak into the Tennessee Aquarium and make a special Tropical Holiday Adventure appearance. This particular orchid appears to feature the famous cartoon trouble-maker. Our horticulture staff has placed several magnifying glasses around inside the Tropical Cove for visitors to inspect some of the smaller blooms. Many appear to have tiny faces, although this is the only plant with a celebrity bloom.
This weekend is an excellent time to enjoy the Tennessee Aquarium and Chattanooga Riverfront with family and friends. The Aquarium's Tropical Holiday Adventure offers plenty of relaxing and fun options: http://www.tnaqua.org/PlanYourVisit/TropicalHoliday.aspx
And get set for the Grand Illumination on the River, Friday, November 27th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. This free event features a Holiday Market, Lighted Boat Parade, Singing Santa and a fireworks finale.
