The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher invites businesses and organizations to sponsor booths at the 11th annual “Trick-or-Treat Under the Sea.” The 2012 event will again be two nights — Wednesday, Oct. 24 and Thursday, Oct. 25.
The event features indoor trick-or-treating for children from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Booth sponsorship offers a way to promote your business by interacting with families in the community at this fun and popular event. More than 4,000 people attended in 2011.
Early-bird booth reservation is available for $65 per day until Sept. 1; $75 after. Businesses participating both evenings benefit from a $10 discount. Vendors may attend one or both nights.
Sponsors decorate booths and provide enough treats for the hundreds of children expected each night. The Aquarium is again partnering with Green Halloween, a community initiative to create child- and Earth-friendly holiday traditions. As a result, vendors using eco-friendly materials garner higher scores for the Best Booth Contest. Best Booth winners receive prizes and public recognition, including exposure to thousands of Aquarium friends online. Booth sponsorships are available first-come, first-served. For more information or to register, call Special Events Coordinator Emily Clark at 910-458-8257 ext. 218.
