The Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) will host “Lights by the Bay,” a drone light show, on June 24 beginning at 6:30pm. Hovering drones take center stage, painting the sky with breathtaking aerial maneuvers and captivating light displays, all set against the stunning backdrop of CMA.

This is a ticketed event. General admission tickets cost $55 for adults, and $35 for children, and include live entertainment, and an interactive dolphin demonstration, in addition to the drone light show. Adult GA passes also come with two drink tickets. Food is available for purchase throughout the venue, and a cash bar will also be present.
