Last weekend, one of our favorite local authors Jacqueline DeGroot was at River Fest in Downtown Wilmington, NC. She was promoting her books including Sunset Beach: A History. She sent us a couple pictures and from the looks of things, it seems that she met a few pirates there.
It’s fall in the coastal area, and that means it’s festival time. This coming weekend, October 15th and 16th, is the 31st Annual North Carolina Oyster Festival at Ocean Isle Beach. There will be music (featured musical artist Josh Kelly) , food, games, vendors, local authors, and most importantly all kinds of seafood and an oyster stew cook off!
And finally, the last full weekend in October, the Holden Beach Merchants Association hosts the very popular NC Festival by the Sea. This 2 day events is kicked off with a parade down the Holden Beach causeway. There will be arts, crafts, vendors and plenty of onsite foods, as well as some great musical acts.
It’s a great time to be on the North Carolina Coast!
