Come late October, families experience a different side of the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island after the sun gets low and night falls. The annual Trick or Treat Under the Sea is a family friendly Halloween activity that imagines what the holiday could be like in the depths of the Atlantic. While visitors discover the mysteries of Halloweentown and meet ghosts from the Graveyard of the Atlantic, they’ll also ooo and ahh at costumed divers swimming with sharks and glimpses of the aquarium’s other creatures after dark. This is a trick-or-treat event for young children, and they’re invited to dress up in their Halloween costumes and gather sweets and treats from the vendors from local businesses and organizations. Tickets for this event can be purchased on the aquarium’s website.
