MOODY GARDENS SAYS THANK YOU TO GALVESTON ISLAND OCT. 20
Galveston residents, workers receive free day admission on annual Appreciation Day

Galveston, Texas (September 17, 2019) – Journey beneath the waves inside the Aquarium Pyramid, trek through the rainforests of the world, and learn all about the bones of the body – plus so much more – at this year’s Galveston Appreciation Day.

Galveston residents and workers will be treated to a one-of-a-kind experience at one of the top tourist destinations in the region when Moody Gardens hosts this annual event on Oct. 20 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Guests who live or work on Galveston Island – along with their immediate family – will receive free admission to the Aquarium Pyramid, Rainforest Pyramid, Discovery Museum, MG 3D Theater, 4D Special FX Theater and the Colonel Paddlewheel Boat.

Shearn’s Seafood and Prime Steaks will also be offering Galveston residents free mimosas during their Sunday brunch meal, from 10 AM to 2 PM. The restaurant is located on the 9th floor of Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center.

“Galveston Island has a great community spirit, and it is our residents and employees who work here who make it so very special,” said Moody Gardens President and CEO John Zendt. “Being able to give the Galveston community a day to enjoy Moody Gardens on us allows us to truly express our gratitude.”

Guests must show proof of island residency or employment with a driver’s license or state identification card, utility bill, paycheck stub or work identification badge to be eligible for the Galveston Appreciation Day offer.

Moody Gardens will give away more than 2,000 Oleanders and Palm Trees to island residents as part of a beautification project. Visit www.moodygardens.com/calendar/galvestonday by Oct. 19 to receive a voucher for the Oleander or Palm Tree. It can be redeemed at the front of the Visitor Center on Galveston Appreciation Day 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
