On Wednesday, October 29, join the Vancouver Aquarium’s 19+ event, After Hours, for a spooky evening as event guests enjoy special hair-raising programs such as Snakes on a Stage anda special appearance by Darth Vader at the Venomous Fishes dive show.
Explore 50,000 aquatic creatures with a beer or glass of wine in hand as you learn about the spine-tingling creatures that call the Vancouver Aquarium home, from venomous fishes and jellies, to bats, bugs, snakes and scorpions. You’ll also have the opportunity to get hands-on in their Wet Lab and to immerse yourself in their 4-D Theatre, featuring BBC Earth’s The Great Salmon Run.
Those in the Halloween spirit are invited to wear a costume to the event and snap a selfie in the Vancouver Aquarium galleries with the hashtag #AfterHours for a chance to win a free pair of tickets to their next event. Prizes will be awarded for best costume, best group costume, and best aquatic themed costume – so get creative!
Please note, the safety of animals at the Vancouver Aquarium is a priority, so please don’t wear balloons, feathers, confetti, bubbles, sparklers, glowsticks or beaded mardi gras necklaces in your costumers.
Tickets are available online only until 5 p.m. on October 29. Purchase yours early at vanaqua.org/afterhours to avoid disappointment, as the event often sells out well in advance.
