Celebrate with Candy, Costumes, and Creatures at the Texas State Aquarium’s “Boo! In the Blue”

September 16, 2022

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Texas State Aquarium is thrilled to welcome you back for Halloween under the sea with its annual Boo! In the Blue event on Saturday, October 22nd, and Sunday, October 23rd.

This unique event, presented by Whataburger, will include a variety of not-so-scary, family-friendly activities, including spooky décor throughout the Aquarium, fun photo backgrounds, a virtual costume contest, diver pumpkin carving contests, animal enrichment and encounters, and of course… candy!  

A virtual costume contest will be held during the weekend of the event, October 22nd and 23rd. Boo! In The Blue photos with the hashtag #txstateaquarium will be automatically entered in the contest, and a prize sponsored by Whataburger will be given on Oct. 31 for the three best costumes. All activities are included with admission or membership, and children (ages 3 to 12) in costume will get a 50% admission discount* with the purchase of a full-priced adult admission. Membership admission is not applicable for child discount. 

Some spooky décor will bring a Halloween ambiance to the Aquarium experience. Underwater skeletons, decorated exhibits and giant shark jaws covered in cobwebs will all make for some great photo ops. 

The Aquarium will be open from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on both days with “Boo! In The Blue” activities from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. To purchase tickets to “Boo! In the Blue” in advance and skip the line, visit www.texasstateaquarium.org/tickets.
