Night Dive

Start your Halloween celebration off early with the fall edition of Night Dive! Come see the spooky side of the Aquarium with for a night full of scarily good music, art, and culture.

Costumes encouraged with extra points for Aquarium-themed costumes. Please save the overly gory and scary costumes for another party. Also, heads up, toy and look-alike weapons (such as guns, swords, bow and arrow, etc.) and full face masks will be confiscated at the door.

In case you don’t know about Night Dive, it’s an adults-only event with local bands rockin’ out right next to the fish, DJs spinning in the Aquarium’s galleries, inspiring works of art, cocktails and drinks, and tasty bites from food trucks. Turn up and take it all in!
