(NEWPORT, Ore.) - Teeth-gnashing zombies will terrorize Oregon Coast Aquarium visitors the night of Saturday, October 25, when the annual Halloween celebration, Creatures of the Night, invades the Newport-based attraction.

This 4-acre passage of nightmares will frighten and delight visitors that embrace the spirit of Halloween from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The Aquarium hosts the annual event to raise food for Food Share of Lincoln County before the Thanksgiving holiday, and pet food for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter.

Due to the frightening nature of this event, parents are strongly discouraged from bringing children under the age of eight, or older children with sensitive natures. Strollers and flash photography are prohibited.

Those that dare to brave Creatures of the Night may gain entry with $2 and two cans of non-perishable people or pet food. Admission is $5 without donated food items. Entry for Aquarium members is free, but they are still encouraged to donate items.

Creatures of the Night is made possible thanks to the event’s presenting sponsor, BigFoot Beverages.

The Aquarium will close at 4 p.m. on October 25 in preparation for the event and will resume its normal winter hours, opening at 10:00 a.m. and closing at 5:00 p.m., the next day. For more information, call (541) 867-FISH or visit
