The Great Lakes Aquarium held Scarium, a Halloween event, over three nights this year instead of its usual one. Multiple days allowed guests to properly social distance while trick-or-treating, watching deep sea pumpkin carving, and participating in a scavenger hunt. At the end of the evening kids took home a craft bag that included an otter mask for them to make.

Hencinski, a 20-year volunteer veteran, drove from Rochester to participate in all three days of this year's event. She's only missed one Halloween event in her 20 years.
