The phrase conjures memories of hotdogs, apple pie, family picnics and fireworks – and thoughts of freedom, liberty and patriotic pride.  For each of us perhaps it means something a little different, but for all of us it means something.  Now the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) is asking what it means to your child, with a contest for children ages 5 to 15. Six winners will be chosen for a meeting with the CMA dolphins, and the chance-of-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of the dolphin show at the Fourth of July extravaganza.

To enter, simply email the CMA at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.">This email address is being protected from spambots.

This contest is part of the Aquarium's first ever Fourth of July celebration extravaganza.  The event will include live music, food and activities for the whole family – even an Independence Day-themed dolphin show. There will be plenty of fun for everyone!

Admission to CMA is $11 for adults, $9 for seniors (ages 60 and over), and $7.50 for kids (ages 3-12). Picnic fare is available for additional purchase at $5 for adults, $4 for children. The CMA also has an 11-week summer camp beginning Monday June 8th and running through August 21st. Spaces are filling up quickly, so visit www.cmaquarium.org for registration information.
