U.S. Navy divers to take the plunge at aquarium in Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid in Memphis

WHAT: You are invited to join us for a special exhibition by the U.S. Navy Dive Team at Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid in Memphis, Tennessee. The event will take place at the freshwater aquarium on the ground floor of the Pyramid at the north side.

Members of the EOD Group 2 will host an interactive dive with the audience. They will be demonstrating their diving skills, answering questions from the audience and playing tic-tac-toe through the aquarium glass with kids.

The divers’ exhibition caps off this past week’s celebration of Navy Week at the Pyramid which included a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) display and a Navy rock band concert. Navy Weeks are held to increase awareness of the Navy, its mission and its role to the community of Memphis and to showcase the Navy’s talented people. Additionally, the Navy has been celebrating the centennial of military presence at Naval Support Activity Mid-South this week.

In addition, the Navy Brass Quintet will perform in the south lobby of the Pyramid.
