Birthday festivities for Winter and Hope

- Happy Birthday Winter and Hope! The bottlenose dolphins are celebrating birthdays this month. Winter is turning 10 and Hope is turning 5 and to celebrate, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is throwing them a birthday party.

On Saturday, October 10 and Sunday, October 11, there will be games and crafts from 12-1 p.m. and on Saturday, there will be cake at 3:30 p.m. along with a serenade of Happy Birthday. 

If you can't be there for cake, join the Clearwater Marine Aquarium on Periscope through Twitter, just follow them at @CMAAquarium and you can see it all live. 

Kids can also save $10 off admission all month long if they bring a homemade birthday card for Winter or Hope (one discount per child per card.) 

Both Winter and Hope were rescued in December when they were about 2 months old, so it is estimated that their birthdays are in October. 

Winter's rescue in 2005 was the inspiration for the film "Dolphin Tale," and Hope's rescue was the inspiration for the second film, "Dolphin Tale 2."
