It's the beginning of the holiday season - and my boys are at a great age to really go out and have fun. That's why I am really looking forward to taking them to SeaWorld's Halloween Spooktacular! From pumpkin fishes to friendly sea witches, Halloween meets the sea this October in an underwater “fantasea” where children can dance with an ice DJ, play with sea fairies and learn from a school fish.

This will be my first year attending - so what can I expect? Well, it's totally family-friendly for the smallest of kids as they travel through an ocean full of fun filled with enchanted pathways and charming sea creatures, providing the utmost in family-friendly trick-or-treating.
