RiverQuarium prepares to celebrate 10th anniversary

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Flint RiverQuarium is preparing to celebrate a big milestone. its 10th anniversary.

On Friday and Saturday visitors can see a special portable butterfly exhibit. They're also providing breakfast, a movie, and other activities for kids. Officials are proud of 10 years of success.

"Well we are all really excited," said Vicki Churchman, Manager of Member and Volunteer Services. There are several of us that have been here from almost the beginning. Some have been here before there was an aquarium and were involved in the original plans and everything. So we're just really excited that we made it to ten years and we're looking forward to another ten years.

The breakfast with the butterflies starts at 9:00 a.m. both days, but you must RSVP. The rest of the activities start afterward with regular admission.
