Trick or Treat Under the Sea A Success!

The N.C. Aquarium at Fort Fisher’s seventh annual Trick or Treat Under the Sea was a huge success thanks to the community, vendors and donors. Over 2,300 visitors enjoyed indoor trick-or-treating from local businesses and organizations that decorated booths set up among the exhibits and galleries.

Kids of all ages also enjoyed Scotty the Pirate Magician, playing games, seeing alligators bobbing for apples, fishes munching on jack-o-lanterns and scary divers in the Aquarium’s 235,000 gallon Cape Fear Shoals tank.
