Putt for penguins with the Aquarium of Niagara
Nighttime minigolf: it’s fun, it’s fresh, and it’s a great way to raise funds for our feathered and finny friends. This unique event begins with registration and a putting contest at 5, followed by a dinner buffet at 6. The first nine holes are played in daylight, starting at 7, with a break for raffles, prizes, and awards. The real fun starts at 9:30, when you’ll be hustled back outside and fitted with glow-in-the-dark necklaces and golf balls. The course lights will be turned off so you’ll finish the next nine holes in near-blackness, with only the glowing orbs and celebrity emcee Kevin O’Neill to light your way. All proceeds will go directly back to the care of the aquarium’s living collection.
