Want to hang with mermaids? You can at Ripley's Aquarium

GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WVLT) -- What would you ask a mermaid? Some kids got a chance to do that Thursday while having breakfast with them.

Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies is hosting breakfast with the mermaids on Thursdays.

"Breakfast with the mermaids we have on Thursday mornings. You buy your tickets directly online. They have a hot breakfast with the mermaid, the mermaid does a little meet and greet. They also get a free photo with the mermaid as well and it includes admission into the aquarium," said Crystal Durrett, Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies.

"We have a max of about 60 people per seating so get your tickets today, we really want to make sure that all the kids coming to the aquarium enjoy themselves. Having a mermaid to do it with makes it even better."

The mermaids also have daily performances at noon, 2, and 4pm all summer long.
