Noche de Estrellas at The Aquarium of the Pacific
Guests can party with the sea stars and learn about marine life and the environment at the Aquarium of the Pacific’s Latin-themed Late Night on Friday, March 24, 2017, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
The Aquarium will remain open past normal operating hours so guests can dance to the sounds of cumbia, rock en Español, salsa, and other Latin rhythms with the live bands and DJs. The Noche de Estrellas (Night of the Stars) event will feature Aztec dance, crafts, and bilingual educational programs, including an underwater SCUBA diving show, scavenger hunt with prizes, ocean-related activities, and environmental activities—all offered in both English and Spanish.
The event will also feature special programming highlighting the world’s smallest and most critically endangered whale, the vaquita—only 30 remain. Mexican cuisine, beers, wine, cocktails, and refreshments will also be available for guests to purchase.
In addition to being immersed in Latin culture, guests can journey through the Pacific Ocean to meet over 11,000 animals at the Aquarium, including animals they can touch, from sharks and rays to horseshoe crabs.
Please note: The Lorikeet Forest aviary closes at 4:30 p.m. People can enjoy the ambiance of the Aquarium at night for the discounted price of $14.95 per person during this all-ages event.
