One of the area’s favorite holiday traditions returns to the unique setting of the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher for a magical treat for all ages. Approximately 50 uniquely-decorated trees will line the mezzanine and exhibit areas of the aquarium offering visitors to spectacular attractions in one. Perfect for family and friends visiting during the holidays, entertainment for children on school break, and inspiration for your own holiday decorating, admission to the aquarium is all that is needed to enjoy this forest of decorated trees.
This year a limited number of theme-decorated wreaths will be available for purchase to add to your own holiday decor. Be sure to stop by our Memorial Tree and place a dove on the tree to remember and honor your loved ones.
Proceeds from the sale of wreaths as well as donations made at the event go to provide the highest-quality care and support to individuals and families in our community.
