Fin Fest is back! Greater Cleveland Aquarium highlights sharks in virtual and in-person event

Test your knowledge of your favorite sharks at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium.

CLEVELAND — Can you hear the Jaws music? It's among us! Fin Fest is back at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium from August 9 through the 16.

It falls on the same week as the Discovery Channel's famous "Shark Week."

And this year -- it's going to be a little different due to COVID-19 restrictions, but still just as much fun.

In a week-long spotlight on sharks, you learn to appreciate the diversity and importance these jaw-some animals. 

Guests can watch shark-themed videos, or do trivia and quizzes in person, or online.

"We are a bit limited onsite, extra activities that we would normally do, which is why we're increasing the virtual portion," curator Ray Popik said.

You can also check out a live scuba demonstration with a trained professional. They'll swim around with three of the four shark species in the shark gallery: Sand Tiger; sandbar; and nurse.

Plus for the kiddos, they'll send you home with a make-and-take craft and a temporary tattoo.
