Flytrap Family Fun Day

Flytrap Family Fun Day at Carolina Beach State Park features a celebration of what Royal Governor Arthur Dobbs in 1759 described as a "catch fly sensitive found at Latitude 34" - the famous Venus Flytrap. The event includes crafts, games, face painting, interpreters in period costume, and carnivorous plant hikes. Meet at the Picnic Area at 10am to 2pm. For more information, call the park office at 910-458-8206.
