The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher serves up a perfect morning for those with a ferocious appetite for prehistoric knowledge with “Dinos and Donuts” on March 25 and 26 at 8 a.m. The one-hour program delivers a rare treat appropriate for dinosaur lovers of all ages.

He will engage audiences with models and fossils for an interactive experience. In addition, participants will take home a dinosaur-related souvenir.
Breakfast begins at 8 a.m. and will include dinosaur-themed donuts, provided by Wake and Bake Donuts, fruit, yogurt, juice, milk and coffee. “Dinos and Donuts” is $18 for ages 13 and older; $16 for ages 3 to 12; $5 for 2 year olds; children one and younger are free.
