Get your lightsabers ready, May the 4th is coming.
For one evening this spring, you’re invited to transport yourself to a galaxy far, far away, to Ripley’s Aquarium’s first-ever cosplay bash.
On Friday, May 4, guests are invited to celebrate the world of cosplay and dress up as their favourite pop culture characters, such as Mace Findu from Starfish Wars, Batfish and Robin, Aquaman or whoever your little fin desires.
Upon arrival, costume-clad partygoers can climb aboard the Krillennium Falcon and dance the night away to the sounds of out-of-this-world DJ beats.
Guests can also enjoy signature cocktails from one of the Aquarium’s several bars and get their picture taken at the photo booth.
Tickets are $30 plus HST and include general admission to the aquarium and all nine galleries.
For those who wear costumes, all weapons and props are subject to mandatory inspections performed by staff or security staff. As a general rule, no metal prop weapons are allowed.
When: Friday, May 4
Time: 8 pm to 12 am
Where: Ripley’s Aquarium, 288 Bremner Blvd.
Price: Available online for $30 plus HST
