CHICAGO (AP) — Some unlikely visitors are expected at Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium next week.

U.S. Navy divers will swim into the lakefront facility’s Caribbean Reef exhibit on Tuesday with several planned dives throughout the day.

Organizers say the idea is to give visitors the opportunity to learn about the Navy’s special operations group and everyday life in the Navy.

Saturday is the start of Chicago Navy Week, and events citywide have been designed to overlap with the city’s large food festival, the Taste of Chicago.

Other events for Navy Week include community service projects and performances by the Navy Band. Several other cities nationwide will also have a Navy Week this year. They include Detroit, New Orleans and Fargo, N.D.
