Win Tickets to the February 11 Penguins+Pajamas: An Overnight Adventure at the California Academy of Sciences

Penguins + Pajamas at the California Academy of SciencesWe a lot of fun at the California Academy of Sciences' Penguins + Pajamas sleepover when we attended last summer—it's a fantastic experience. The next Penguis+Pajamas sleepover is scheduled for Saturday, February 11, 2012, and we're giving away tickets to a lucky Marin Mommies reader!

Experience your own "night at the museum" as you explore the exhibits after-hours, stargaze at the planetarium show, and enjoy a special live animal presentation. Before bedtime, settle in for story time with cookies and milk to learn about Pierre—the Academy’s famous wetsuit-wearing penguin.

When the lights go out, unroll your sleeping bag in African Hall, next to the swaying kelp of the California Coast tank, or even at the Swamp window, face-to-face with Claude, the albino alligator. In the morning, rise and shine, then head over to the Academy Café for breakfast.

Penguins+Pajamas guests on February 11 will be some of the first to explore the Academy's new aquarium gallery, Animal Attractions. The Radio Disney AM 1310 Road Crew will also be on hand that evening to provide entertainment, including games, new dances, sing-alongs to favorite tunes, and tons of awesome prizes.
