There's a pretty fun opportunity coming up this weekend in Duluth. Winter has arrived and we've already started to feel cooped up in our homes. So this makes it the perfect time to get out and do something fun!

The Arrowhead Ice Fishing and Winter Show is coming to the DECC this Friday-Sunday. One of the featured exhibits this year is the Sea Lion Splash Show. They actually bring in two pools, a stage, and three trained sea lions.

I got a chance to speak with Jimmy, one of the trainers who will be here this weekend. They have 7 rescued sea lions, and they are bringing three of them this to the shows at the DECC.  I asked Jimmy what kind of tricks that the sea lions can do and he promised me I wouldn't be disappointed. I found some videos on YouTube and it looks like he's right. It's pretty impressive.

The Sea Lion Splash show happens several times throughout the weekend. On Friday they have shows at 2 and 4 pm. Saturday's shows are 12, 2, 4, and 6PM. Sunday they also have shows at 12 and 2pm. The shows are about 30 minutes long and a fun educational program.
