Costume Guidelines

We ask that for the safety of our exhibits and your surrounding trick-or-treaters you review the following costume rules for the Halloween Dance Party:

  • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials.
  • Masks may only be worn for photo opportunities.
  • The Monterey Bay Aquarium reserves the right to turn away any guest with a costume that we deem offensive or unsafe.

Remember, this is an Aquarium-member, family-friendly event and we want everyone to enjoy themselves!
