Stargaze at Aquarium Sleepover

Filed under: Fort Fisher by fortfisher on Friday, October 19th, 2012

Ever wonder what happens when the sun goes down at the  Aquarium? Bring the family and your pillows to see for yourself at Stars and Fishes sleepover.

This new event sheds light on the wonders of the night inside and outside the Aquarium doors on Nov. 16, 2012. Stargaze, identify constellations and discuss the nocturnal behavior of local animals on a guided, night hike. Educators bring the outside in with live-animal presentations, too. When it’s time for bed, you won’t need a night light. Drift off to sleep watching sharks, rays and other animals swim in the two-story Cape Fear Shoals habitat. Wake in the morning to complete the adventure with a private, guided tour of the Aquarium.

Stars and Fishes begins 6 p.m. Friday and ends 9 a.m. Saturday. Crafts, snacks, and breakfast are included, dinner is not. Guests should bring sleeping bags and pillows. This program is open to ages 5 and older, children ages 5 to 17 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Program fee is $45 and pre-registration is required. Limited space available. Register here.
