Get into the spirit of the season this Saturday and Sunday at Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium when the marine science center celebrates Halloween and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
The Aquarium, beach level at the Santa Monica Pier at 1600 Ocean Front Walk, has spooky, family friendly activities planned both days from 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Experiment in the mad scientist laboratory, tip toe (if you dare!) through the marine animal graveyard, and create colorful Dia de los Muertos crafts and masks.
Both days will feature a glow in the dark bioluminescent deep-sea experience and don’t miss the “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” a presentation on the amazing abilities of marine parasites.
Face painting and spooky story times are scheduled throughout the weekend as well.
Children under 13 are admitted free with an adult; for all others, there is a suggested donation of $5 or a $3 minimum admission fee.
For groups of 10 or more, the entry fee is $2 per person. Come celebrate the season – costumes are encouraged.
