Displayed throughout the aquarium's tanks will be glowing jack-o'-lanterns with carvings of sharks, rays, fish and other sea critters. The aquarium will also have sensory tables with pumpkin slime, and guests can pay $5 to paint and take home their own pumpkin.

Brave visitors can check out the "What Goes Bump in the Midnight Zone" show, which showcases animals that live in the darkest depths of the ocean.

During the event, the aquarium will offer fall-themed treats like pumpkin ice cream cones, as well as pumpkin beer in the Flying Fish Beer Garden.

On Saturday, Sept. 23, from 6-8 p.m., Adventure Aquarium will host a Family Inclusive Sensory Hours (FISH) event, geared toward guests with autism and other sensory sensitivities.

Tickets for Fintastic Fall Days are available online. Parents with children between 2 and 5 years old can register their kids for the Pre-K Kid’s Adventure Pass, which gives children free admission to the aquarium for a year.
