This Sunday: 46th Ward Day At The Shedd Aquarium

Remember when the 48th Ward had its Ward Day at the Shedd last month, with half price admission for all ward residents?  This Sunday it's Ward Day for 46th Ward residents.

It's the same procedure:  Buy your tickets at the Aquarium by showing an ID with an address that identifies you as a resident of the 46th Ward.  Admission prices are two-for-the-price-of-one, or half off a single admission.

Shedd partners with Ald. James Cappleman to provide discounted admission through Ward Days program.

WHAT: For more than 80 years, Shedd Aquarium has proudly served the City of Chicago and its diverse communities. Shedd is continuing that tradition through partnerships with local aldermen through its Ward Days program. With the support of Ald. James Cappleman, the aquarium will provide discounted admission to residents of the 46th Ward on Sunday, December 11.

Whether the aquarium is a place for communities to gather, families to create memorable moments, grandparents to visit with grandkids, or adults to reconnect with their favorite childhood memories, every day at Shedd provides a new adventure. Shedd’s Ward Days program is a special opportunity for Chicagoans to explore the wonders of the undersea world and enjoy the true spirit of community.

Residents will receive discounted admission and a 10 percent discount on food and gift store items. In addition to experiencing Shedd’s popular aquatic show, Ward Days participants will also have the opportunity to meet Ald. Cappleman.
