As the Azalea festival Wilmington NCapproaches and plans are underway, the excitment in the area is growing! Wilmington NC has been throwing this "party" for 50 years, so it's no wonder that it's such a big deal around here. We take advantage of the great weather and beautiful flowers with a parade, street fair, circus, concerts and more.
