Fall is here and that means the start of festival season! Next Saturday, October 5th, is the 7th annual Sunset at Sunset Festival! Pelican Bookstore is proud to be a sponsor of this great event that brings together all of our friends and neighbors, so come celebrate the history and the local culture of Sunset Beach!
The festival features lots of local vendors, amazing foods, and entertainment including The Imitations! Pelican Bookstore will have it’s own booth with local authors signing their books! It’s lots of fun for the whole family and best of all it’s free, that’s right there’s no admission. So come out and don’t forget to stop by the Pelican Bookstore booth! We’ll see you there!
The Strawberry and Wine Festival this past weekend was such a great success and we thank all of you that came out! We had a wonderful time. And a big thanks to Marybeth Whalen, Jacqueline DeGroot, Silver Coast Winery and The Old Bridge Preservation Society who all made this great event! We can’t wait to do it again next year!
As you may have already heard, Silver Coast Winery along with the Old Bridge Preservation Society is hosting the First Annual Strawberry and Wine Festival on Saturday May 4th. The event also has several sponsors (including Pelican Bookstore) and the proceeds from the festival will go toward the projects of the Old Bridge Preservation Society.
The event will run from noon until 6 pm and has a $5 admission. The event will be a fun afternoon-there will be six hours of music from the Imitations, a chance to meet Marybeth Whalen (author of “The Mailbox” and numerous other novels) a dance contest, live dancing lessons, juried vendors, and an art show amongst all of the activity. There will be strawberry shortcakes, food and drink, and BBQ, Chicken Stew, and pork barbeque for sale as well. You can find more details about the event on our events calendar or on Silver Coast Winery’s website.
Here is a video of Anne Bockelman, of the Old Bridge Preservation Society, being interviewed by ATMC about the festival. Don’t miss this great event, because really who doesn’t love strawberries and wine (and books)?
