Visitors to the Ascarium will also have plenty of opportunities to explore the pumpkin patch and pick their own pumpkin to decorate and paint, as well as enjoy a cooking show from Nettie, the Sea Witch, who will teach you how to make a truly “evil stew.”
Additional entertainment will be provided by children’s musicians Barry G and Ramblin' Davey of the popular Dream Jam Band to celebrate sea life and Halloween. Rock to the rhythms of “Dance like a Skeleton,” “Friends of the Sea,” and the interactive “Act Like an Octopus” song.
And last, but not least, it has been announced that the Aquarium’s sea lions will host their own special Halloween celebration.
