Enjoy an ocean of fun and party with the sea stars and learn about marine life and the environment at the Aquarium of the Pacific’s Latin-themed late night, Noche de Estrellas (Night of the Stars), on Friday, March 4, 2022, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The Aquarium will remain open late so guests can dance to the sounds of cumbia, rock en Español, salsa, and other Latin rhythms with two live bands and a DJ. Noche de Estrellas will feature Aztec dance, take-home crafts, free recipes, and bilingual educational programs, including a sustainable seafood lotería game with prizes and environmental activities and information at participating booths—all offered in both English and Spanish. In addition, guests can journey through the Pacific Ocean to meet over 12,000 animals at the Aquarium, including sharks and rays they can touch. Attendees to this event will also be able to download and experience the Aquarium’s first Spanish-language edition of its visitor app as they explore exhibits. This app edition will be available for free to Aquarium visitors on an ongoing basis.
