Even a turtle has its day. That was the lesson from the footrace that the speedy, but lazy hare lost to the tortoise. If we’re being technical, a turtle would actually race a fish. Clearly, I failed biology, but I’m going to make an uneducated guess that no self-respecting tortoise will complain if you wish him, “happy turtle day,” this Friday. And if you want to high five an actual turtle, or snap a selfie (hashtag Shellfie), head to Turtle Fest at Sea Life Aquarium Grapevine (3000 Grapevine Mills Parkway) from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Friday. Plus, the aquarium has a lot of other water creatures to hang out with. Admission is $20 for adults, $16 for children. For more information, head to visitsealife.com/grapevine.
