The World Oceans Day Fun Continues

The Cat in the Hat and The Surf Divas

Recap of the weekend:

Celebrating World Oceans Day was quite a treat,
Sea Life had an underwater reading, which surely was neat.
Polar bears judged snow sculptures at the Zoo,
And Hornblower Cruises offered free face-painting too.
But of course Cat in the Hat made quite a commotion,
When he paddled out with Surf Diva for a book reading in the ocean.
Missed out on all the fun you say? Well that’s ok,
Cuz World Oceans Day fun continues til Tuesday!

(Insert applause)

Get Seuss This Weekend & Celebrate World Oceans Day

Underwater reading at SEA LIFE Aquarium

San Diego is proud to join hundreds of conservation organizations and thousands of individuals from countries around the world to celebrate World Oceans Day (June 8th) and help raise awareness about the important ways we can protect our oceans.

This year, World Oceans Day is themed around the 50th anniversary of the Dr. Seuss classic, “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish,” and since Dr. Seuss was a local San Diegan, we’re excited to celebrate his legacy.

We’re so excited in fact, that we’re starting the party a little early with a number of fun events taking place this weekend:
