Great White Fishmas

Great White Fishmas brings festive fun back to the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island on Saturday, December 9th from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Join in all the reindeer games and make a holiday craft with help from the Aquarium crew. Decorate a cookie masterpiece in Mrs. Claus’ kitchen and share wintry wishes with Santa as sharks swim by in the Graveyard of the Atlantic exhibit. Live music will feature carols with some fishy flare which is sure to make the season merry and bright. Great White Fishmas is included with regular Aquarium admission.
