We bet you invested a couple of dollars or more on this year’s Halloween getup for your little one.

Now let that fairy dress or Dracula cape save you some money, too.

During Sharktoberfest at Mote Marine Laboratory, children are admitted free with a paid adult admission if they are in costume.

The event takes place on Saturdays and Sundays through Halloween.

In addition to the seahorses, dolphins and other sea creatures you can see up close at the aquarium, Mote mascot “Gilly the Shark” will make special appearances for a few hours on Saturdays throughout the month.

Admission is $17 for adults, $16 for seniors and $12 for youth ages 4 - 12. Children under 4 are admitted free.

Mote Marine Laboratory is located at 1600 Ken Thompson Pkwy. in Sarasota.
