Thanks for including the shell show, Carlos.... DETAILS AND CORRECTION: It's inside the Rotary Centennial Nature Center inside the park. park entrance fee is $8 per car load, up to 8 people. The nature center and shell show are free once you pay to enter the park. It is a beautiful setting, with gorgeous view,and awesome for a rainy day. There is a free movie about the animals that live inside shells too, as well as a free indoor scavenger hunt with prizea. It's always held the 3rd Saturday of the month from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The website www.islandparks.org is an accurate source of information regarding programs and activities held at the nature center. Thanks again, and I know you'll correct your info above.

Thanks for the extra details, Tim! Hope you have a great turnout! The shell show is featured in our calendar as a repeated event every third Saturday. I warmly welcome you to customize it with additional details! To do that, you can create a new event on Patch and once it is in the system, I'm more than happy to cancel out the old one so that yours is the one featured every month instead! Here's a link to the current monthly listing (which also links back to islandparks.org): http://dunedin.patch.com/events/monthly-shell-show-and-exhibit-at-honeymoon-island Here's a link to place a new calendar event: http://dunedin.patch.com/events/new Let me know if I can help in any other way!
