Wilmington, North Carolina -Home of the Azalea Festival! Every Welcome to Wilmington sign has this tagline.
Since we moved to #ILM from #ATL in November 2017, we have been eagerly anticipating the Spring to see what the hype is all about. The Azalea Festival is the largest festival of its kind in North Carolina. Founded in 1948, more than 200,000 are expected to attend the four-day festival, April 11-15, 2018, featuring a parade, street fair, home and garden tours and much more, including…the crowning of the annual Azalea Queen. I checked out the list of past Azalea Queens and was surprised to find Kelly Ripa, and 70’s star Joan Van Ark, to name a few!
Wilmington is a beautiful city , surrounded by the Cape Fear River, Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic. I enthusiastically look forward to #ILM in the Spring, just a few short weeks away. I think I missed the deadline to Volunteer for this festival, but sign me up in the Fall for 2019!
