Thanks to all who made our 19th annual Family Day on Saturday, March 30, 2013 such a great success!
Approximately 1,400 people enjoyed a sunny spring day in the Museum of Coastal Carolina’s parking lot and took advantage of low-cost nature-themed crafts, temporary tattoos, and games. Visitors snacked on fresh popcorn, hot dogs and chicken from Castaway Grill, soda, and Sunset Slushes. Our volunteers hosted a very successful used book sale, with all proceeds benefiting the Museum and Planetarium. The Ocean Isle Beach Sea Turtle Protection Organization was on hand to answer questions about the sea turtles that nest on our shore every summer. The OIB Fire and Police Departments were also here. Our volunteers were also on hand to grill and sell Boston butts.
Regular Museum admission was waived during Family Day. Visitors took the opportunity to tour the Museum’s many themed galleries and help docents feed the animals in the Touch Tank.
Family Day in 2014 is on Saturday, April 19, from 10:00 to 2:00.
