VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Mermaids, wizards and fairies can only be seen on rare occasions, but there’s no need to hold your wings: your chance to do so is almost here.

As the month of April approaches, the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center will be hosting FantaSea Evenings, the aquarium announced in a news release.

Join in on the aquatic life with a mystical spin from April 8-9 and 15-16, from 6-8:30 p.m. at the aquarium, 717 General Booth Boulevard in Virginia Beach.

The FantaSea event will be filled with lots to do, ranging from pirates in the Pirates Cove telling tales, or seeing a mermaid relaxing on their mermaid oasis.

At the Upland Fairy Garden, look for fairies and take pictures with them, buy a color-changing enchanted beverage, and learn about the science behind wizardry.

Dressing up as one of your beloved FantaSea characters is an even better way to enjoy the aquarium.
