Fire in the Pines Festival
The importance of controlled burning is cause for the Fire in the Pines festival at Halyburton Park in Wilmington, NC on October 13, 2018.
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.
