Posted: Updated:
ROCKPORT (Kiii News) -

If you haven't made any plans for this Labor Day weekend, you might want to consider a family-friendly fundraising event that is going on in Rockport.

It's the second annual Aquafest, and it will be going on this weekend at the Rockport Aquarium in Rockport Harbor. The event is expected to have games for the little ones, as well as the bigger kids, and a live band for the adults.

Plus, they will be celebrating the birthday of Marley the Eel, who turns 12 this year.

Organizers of Aquafest said this year's celebrations will be bigger than last year.

"We add more vendors this year," Aquafest Chair Dana Daniel said. "We have added food, which we didn't have last year really, and we'll have a beer tent for those who want to partake in that."

The goal of the event is to help bring in money so the Aquarium can grow.

The event begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and noon Sunday. For more information, you can call the Aquarium at Rockport Harbor at 361-727-0016, or visit www.rockportaquarium.com.
