If you are into exploring and learning about marine life, you're in luck this weekend. The Meadowlands Exposition Center is hosting it's Aquatic Experience event which includes unique aquatic attractions from around the world.

I am weirdly obsessed with stingrays, and I was looking to see if there was an attraction where I could swim with stingrays. I'm unfortunately out of luck, so I guess I'll have to go on some extravagant tropical vacation to do that.

Here are some other fun attractions they do offer:

  1. Live Shark Encounter  - A diver will give an informational speech about the misconceptions of sharks while playing around in a tank with them!  
  2. Fish From Around The World - Huge 180 Gallon tanks will feature tropical fish from all over.
  3. International Shrimp Contest -  Wow this contest is actually a really big deal. Contestants can enter to show off their exotic or rare beta shrimp for a chance to win up to $1,000 dollars. Contestants will compete in 17 different categories. Is it bad I thought this would be an eating contest? 
  4. Ask A Fish Vet - If you are interested in the life of a veterinarian for fish or want to pursue this as a career, than this is your chance to ask away!
  5. Win a Betta Toss - Bring your beer pong skills to life this weekend.with a chance to take home an awesome Betta.
