Fire in the Pines Festival
The importance of controlled burning is cause for a festival at Halyburton Park in Wilmington, NC on October 14, 2017.
The highlight of the festival is a demonstration controlled burn to give festival goers the opportunity to see how burns are conducted and learn more about their importance to the ecosystem. Fire equipment (including a helicopter) will be on display and Smokey Bear is scheduled to be a special guest. Games, food trucks, live music, live animals (including a raptor show), crafts, face paintings and a scavenger hunt are also on the day’s agenda.
