Holiday gives RiverQuarium a boost

July 4, 2007

Albany--  While South Georgians waited for the fireworks festivities to begin Wednesday night, they took time to visit a downtown Albany jewel.

The Flint Riverquarium was busy this 4th of July holiday with lots of visitors. Before 4 Wednesday afternoon, more than 400 tickets were sold and all Imagination Theater movies were sold out.

Eric Bowen and his family traveled from Ellaville to check out the attraction for the first time. He hopes it's around for them to visit a second time.

"I enjoyed it. I had a lot of fun. They have a lot of good things in here," said Bowen, "we home school our kids and I think this would be a good field trip to do again sometime."

The Riverquarium extended it's hours until 8 p.m. Wednesday and reduced admission to $5 and $25 for groups of 5 or more.
