Cabrillo Marine Aquarium will host the annual Whale Fiesta celebration from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 25. The 39th annual event, co-sponsored by CMA and the American Cetacean Society Los Angeles Chapter, is held to celebrate marine mammals and the migration of Pacific gray whales along the California coast.

Over 20 marine organizations will have exhibits, providing information on awareness and protection of ocean life. Whale experts will also be on hand throughout the day presenting lectures. 

Attendees can take part in activities such as face painting, games, contests, origami and other arts and crafts projects, including helping to build a life-size sand sculpture of a Baird's beaked whale.

Admission is free as is parking, which is available at 22nd and Miner Streets, with access to complimentary shuttle service to and from the Aquarium.

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located at 3720 Stephen M. White Drive in San Pedro.
