Celebrate Halloween at the Aquarium this year with Night Dive, Family Halloween Night presented by the Aquarium’s educators, the annual Scarium of the Pacific weekend, and Haunted Atlantis, a dance party for kids and families.

The October 12 edition of Night Dive, the Aquarium’s popular evening event for adults ages 18 and up, will kick off the Halloween festivities with live band performances, art, food, and Halloween-theme performers.

Family Halloween Night on October 26 will celebrate Halloween with an educational twist. Dress up in your coolest costume and explore our exhibits with your family and friends. Our upcoming Halloween Family Night will offer a unique opportunity to explore the Aquarium, learn about animal blood types, explore and touch animals, and venture into our famous Biofact Boneyard. This event is free for Aquarium members and $17.95 for non-members.

On October 27 and 28 the Aquarium is hosting its nineteenth annual Scarium of the Pacific festival, a Halloween event for the whole family. Enjoy special Halloween programs, including the annual children’s costume contest, creepy coloring contest, magic shows, underwater pumpkin carving, spooky storytelling, and kooky crafts, and meet eerie animals in the Great Hall. This festival is free with general admission.

On October 28 Kids Dance Society will turn the Aquarium into a dance party for kids and families with an event called Haunted Atlantis. The event will feature a DJ and performers on the dance floor, including hula hoopers and Circuit Breaker the dancing robot. Kids can also snap a photo in the photo booth and add to their look with face painting and glitter tattoos. Glow items and LED flashing accessories will be available for purchase. Family friendly costumes are welcome. The entire Aquarium will be open during this event, except Lorikeet Forest. Tickets are $23 for Aquarium members and $25 for non-members.
