Check out the glow-in-the-dark fun in the mad scientist’s lab and don’t miss the plastic bag maze—make your way through and come out a winner, ready to say “No” to single use plastic bags! Visit the face painting station or the mask making craft table to create a fabulous fish-centric disguise; hear a spooktacular story at 2 p.m. on Saturday (appropriate for the youngest trick-or-treaters).

On Sunday, join a ghoulish costume parade around the Pier that starts off in front of the Aquarium at 3 p.m. (Come in costume, or check out the costume giveaway the Aquarium will hold that day.) Every Sunday is Shark Sunday; at 3:30 p.m. watch the sharks chow down their favorite treats and learn fun facts about these misunderstood fish.
