SAN FRANCISCO (October 1, 2004) - Halloween is all about
fearsome frights and creepy crawlies, so what better place to
celebrate than the Academy's ANTS exhibit, which is home to six
different species of live ants? If the sight of a million Army ants
doesn't spook you, turn the corner and test your bravery by
slithering through SSsssnake Alley. This year, a visit to the Academy
of Sciences on Halloween day is a ghoulishly good deal - come costumed
as an ant (or simply wear a pair of stylish antennae), and you'll get
in FREE. Visitors from the 94109, 94133, and 94123 zip codes can also
get in free on October 31 as part of the Neighborhood Free Days program.
