SeaWorld Orlando just kicked off the company's 50th anniversary celebration on March 21, and the festivities will run for the next 18 months. They include special shows, a Surprise Squad that's handing out random prizes, animal ambassadors, and more.
The park introduced a wide range of merchandise to go along with its celebration, which honors the opening of SeaWorld San Diego in 1964. You can get everything from shirts to hats to pins to tote bags to cuddly plush toys. Click the slideshow accompanying this article for some of the cute and colorful selections.
The celebration will take place all around the park, with mobile shows like Bubble Blowout and Splash Dance, plus live animals in the Sea Garden, which also features four giant sea life sculptures made completely out of trash from the ocean.
