Aquarium Overnight

Snore with the Fishes

Do sharks sleep? What happens to a sea urchin at midnight? And what exactly ARE those sea turtles up to at 3 in the morning? Now’s your chance to find out as the ABQ BioPark’s Aquarium (2601 Central NW) will be opening its doors on Friday, Sept. 18, at 6:30pm and letting a limited number of guests stay for their Aquarium Overnight under the sea (or as close as you can get 700 miles from the nearest ocean.) There will be games, a movie, crafts and, of course, educational opportunities galore, so pack your PJs and toothbrush and don’t make any other plans until 8am Saturday morning. Registration is 30 clams—not from the touch pools—and children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. (Ty Bannerman)
