Family Fun Nights after 5 at the NC Aquarium Pine Knoll Shores

Every Thursday in July, the Aquarium extends its hours until 9 p.m., with activities that follow a different, fun theme each week. Leap Year bonus: five Thursdays in July means five Family Nights!

This Week:  Bringin’ Carolina Heritage Back! 

On Thursday, July 24th the Aquarium will be hosting Banjos to Beach Music for Family Night.  It’s sure to be a North Carolina cultural experience you don’t want to miss!  Vendors from the mountains to the sea will be featured at this all age’s event.  Chat with potters and decoy carvers as they create unique masterpieces.   

Bring your dancin’ shoes to tap your feet to the bluegrass sounds of the Bridgewater Band.  Or… kick your shoes off and do a little shaggin’ with the Atlantic Beach Shag Club.  A proven Crystal Coast tradition!  (Local Tip:  Wear your flip flops, shagging is done best barefoot.  So kick off your flops and get down)!

Activities are free with regular admission or membership. North Carolina Aquarium at PineKnollShores, 252-247-4003,
