The Flint RiverQuarium celebrated their 8th birthday by offering admission to all ages for only $8.

The RiverQuarium opened during Labor Day weekend of 2004 and employees say it's been an experience to watch it grow.

"8 years is definitely a milestone. It's been very fulfilling to see it rise from the ground and become an institution that the whole community can be proud of and enjoy," said Marketing Manager, Wendy Bellacomo.

Bellacomo says she hopes the future holds more visitors, opportunities and programs.
