Vancouver Aquarium's next After Hours will be Halloween-themed (CONTEST)

Oct 4 2017, 5:36 am

It’s good for you to get a fright every now and again.

Especially this month since Halloween creeping up on you. That’s why Vancouver Aquarium is inviting you to see the dark side of the ocean at their After Hours event on Tuesday, October 24.

When the lights go down, you’ll get to witness the nocturnal habits of more than 50,000 aquatic creatures during this adults-only spooky soirée. You can explore the Aquarium’s galleries with a beer or glass of wine in hand as you discover the eerie sea life.

Don’t forget to dress in your Halloween-best because you can participate in the first-ever After Hours costume contest. You could win prizes and bragging rights for best costume, best group costume, and best aquatic-themed costume.

When you’re done looking at the nocturnal animals, there are a lot of other things to do including:

  • Learn about the dangerous animals that live in local waters during this shocking program.
  • Put your aquatic knowledge to the test during the Kraken Trivia Show.
  • Find out what goes chomp in the dark during the Secret Lives of Sharks program.
  • Catch a screening of the exhilarating 4-D film, Coastal Predators.
  • Roll up your sleeves and get hands-on with marine invertebrates like blood stars, spiny sea urchins, and more in the Wet Lab…if you’re brave enough.
