Watch Our Divers Carve Pumpkins Under Water!

Published October 24, 2012

We are really getting in the spirit of Halloween at the Aquarium!

To kick off our exciting weekend of Hallowmarine events at both our Baltimore and Washington, DC venues, the National Aquarium dive team carved pumpkins in our Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit. Not only is this a fun activity for our divers (they can get pretty competitive over who's underwater carving is better), but the fish also really enjoy interacting with our divers while they carve!

This year, we gave our online community on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ the opportunity to watch a live stream of the underwater carving! Stay tuned this week for more exciting posts surrounding our second annual Hallowmarine!
