A monstrously good time at Tennessee Aquarium
A fun Halloween party is planned Oct. 28 at the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga.

The Tennessee Aquarium’s annual family-friendly Halloween party, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 28, will take on a “monstrous” theme in honor of the newly opened Monster Fish exhibit. Both Aquarium buildings and River Place (The building where Monster Fish is located.) will be packed with spooky — but not too spooky — fun for “bouys” and “ghouls” during this year’s celebration.
AquaScarium IX: A Monstrously Good Time will begin at 4 p.m. when guests can begin their Halloween trek in the Tropical Cove. There, pirates will be standing guard over a hoard of candy outside the entrance to the gallery, which will be transformed into a Mermaid Lagoon for the event.
Families, especially kids, are encouraged to arrive in costume for their trip through the specially decorated pathways and galleries of the River Journey and Ocean Journey buildings as well as the newly opened Monster Fish exhibit, which is included with each ticket.
The Tennessee Aquarium’s AquaScarium is a spirited, safe Halloween party for all ages, but younger guests must be accompanied by an adult. Aquarium members and their children can attend at a discounted rate of $8. Non-member tickets are $40 for adults and $30 for ages 3-18. All tickets include admission to both Aquarium buildings and the Monster Fish exhibit.
