The eighth annual whale festival is set to be a splash Sunday at Cape Spear Lighthouse National Historic Site and the Petty Harbour Mini Aquarium.

Events include activities for children, art displays, touch tanks and, of course, whale watching.

Every year thousands of whales migrate to the waters off the east coast of the province to feed, with humpback, minke and fin whales spotted most often.

Visitors can learn about whale biology, see a real whale skeleton, discover some of the food sources available to whales, and listen to recordings of various whale species.
