ATLANTA -- The Georgia Aquarium will keep the Halloween party alive this weekend as they entertain with spooky fun-filled events while guests arrive dressed in their favorite costumes.
Known as the Georgia A-Scary-um, children can receive free admission November 1 and 2 as they visit the amazing exhibit halls at Downtown Atlanta's aquatic showplace.
Up to two children 12 and under dressed in their favorite costume will be allowed to enter the haunted aquarium for free with one paying adult.
"We're inviting families and friends to our sixth annual Halloween event," Georgia Aquarium senior spokesperson Stephanie Johnson said. "We will be really engaged on Halloween as our staff dresses up, too."
Ghostly beluga whales and spider crabs will make it a spook-tacular day; And, the aquarium's newly opened Sea Monsters exhibit may put you in the Halloween spirit.
Sea Monsters will allow you to study twenty authentic plastinated sea creatures and their internal make-up as you discover what it took for them to live and survive under the sea.
The aquarium's mascot Deepo is expected to be swimming through the ocean of visitors and posing for pictures with children.
As Halloween-themed music plays nearby, several of the aquatic exhibits will showcase creatures with a translucent appearance, lighting your Halloween path as you make your way around the multiple showcases.
"This is a positive event for the children," Johnson said. "It's a healthy, learning environment and safe for trick-or-treating."
Ms. Johnson adds that there will be arts and crafts and games during the day.
The live show AT&T Dolphin Tales will have two performances, 12:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., the Aquarium confirmed.
Located across from Centennial Olympic Park, the aquarium will be open Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Adult admission can be purchased online or at the aquarium's window.
