Trick or Treat Under the Sea to bring ‘thrills and gills’ to the NC Aquarium

Posted: Updated:
PINE KNOLL SHORES, N.C. -

Looking for some Halloween fun at the shore? The NC Aquarium tells 9 On Your Side about some festive fun coming up at the aquarium. The aquarium invites everyone to a Halloween event with an aquatic twist at Trick or Treat Under the Sea, Oct. 29 and 30 at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores.

Indoor trick-or-treating among the exhibits is the highlight for both nights. Kids load up on goodies at trick-or treat stations sponsored by local businesses. The sponsors also compete for prizes as the best-decorated or most kid-friendly booth. Halloween décor transforms Aquarium exhibits into haunted waters.

They tell 9 On Your Side the event also offers great photo opportunities and a chance to publicly show off costumes --  with potential award-winning results. Roving judges tag stand-out disguises for special prizes throughout both evenings.  Face-painting, a “Goo-o-o-o Lab,” animal encounters, underwater pumpkin carving demonstrations, otters playing with jack o’ lanterns, and other Halloween hi-jinks promise fun for all ages.

Ticket sales at the door are 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. each night; $8 per person; $7.20 for members; ages 2 and under are admitted free. Advance tickets are available online. Daily admission tickets, receipts and passes do not apply. Regular admission ends at 1 p.m. each day of the event.

The aquarium is also having an event for adults. It is Friday, Oct. 25, with the A-SCARE-Ium adult costume party. Enjoy music by dueling piano duo, New York, NY, plus food beverages, hocus-pocus and other entertainment. Tickets $15 or two for $25 in advance; $20 at the door.
