DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Daytona Lagoon water park unveiled Sunny, the park’s newest yeti mascot to the public on Friday.
The white and magical character arrived the same day spring break began in Volusia County.
According to the park’s website, the character got his name after being born on one of the hottest days of the year in the Canadian Yukon.
Sunny’s unveiling ceremony was attended by the local non-profits Every Kid Swims and 100+ Women Who Care, Shelly of the Daytona Tortugas, as well as water park guests. Every Kid Swims, formally known as Urban Surf 4 Kids, is an outreach organization that works to empower foster children in need through water sports.
In a news release, Daytona Lagoon said 30 local children who are part of the organization, and their families, were among the first to meet Sunny.
