The Vancouver Aquarium is inviting everyone to pay a visit after hours and explore the scarier side of the ocean.
They’re talking goblin sharks, skeleton shrimp, bloodworms, vampire squid, and everything else hidden in the dark.
This Halloween, the facility will be hosting their annual Halloween After Hours event. It’s a chance to discover and watch what goes on at night for more than 50,000 aquatic creatures.
After Hours access will also give visitors a chance to check out the Secret Lives of Sharks program, the Meet a Snake exhibit, a shark screening at the 4-D theatre, as well as a hands-on experience at the Aquarium’s Wet Lab.
Attendees can also join in a Penguin Walk and an Adult Puppet Show, all with a drink in hand.
An after-hours costume contest will also take place, with awards for best costume, best group costume, and best aquatic-themed costume. Anyone dressing up is asked to omit beads, glitter, and sequins from their costume, in order to keep things ocean-friendly.
The event takes place on Wednesday, October 31 from 6 to 10 pm. Tickets are available online, priced at $27 for members, $35 for non-members.
