Halloween on the Harbor

Sunday, October 27, 2019
1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Join us for a special afternoon filled with activities, costumes, and your favorite exhibits inside the Aquarium. Members can make the day extra special with tickets to our member-exclusive area in the Harbor View Terrace Tent. We will have pumpkin decorating, a spooky scavenger hunt, special treats, and much more to celebrate the season. 

Don’t forget the costume contest. Each year, we are delighted to see the creativity of our members, and this year we want to share our members’ costumes on social media. When you arrive at the event, step onto our “blue carpet” in the Harbor View Terrace Tent for a photo entry in the costume contest. Then follow the New England Aquarium on Facebook and Instagram to see the announcement of the winners on Halloween!

The costume categories for 2019 are:
