Moon JellyThe North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher premiers a new neon night of fun specially geared to tweens. By the light of the moon (jellies), children ages 10 to13 take on the Aquarium after dark at the Glow in the Shark sleepover, Saturday, August 23.

This kids-only overnight features marine science discovery in a safe and supervised environment. Qualified and trained staff lead all activities from a squid dissection to games. Before the kids tuck-in for the night they will learn about bioluminescence and meet a number of Aquarium animals.

Dinner, snacks and breakfast will be provided. The event runs from 6 p.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday. Preregistration is required and space is limited. Tickets are $65; multiple sibling and Aquarium Society member discounts are offered.
