As most Landfall, NC property owners already know, this event is held annually to benefit the Cape Fear River environment and this year it kicks off with the Meka II Pirate ship (sponsored by WHET) exchanging fire with the Southport Cannon Group at 5PM on Friday, October 2nd. Riverfest continues October 3 and 4 with activities, shows, competitions, a street fair and much, much more happening throughout the weekend. Beginning at 10AM on Saturday you can take your little ones to the Kid Zone (a freebie at The Cotton Exchange), then over to the Adventure Zone (ride Fees), cruise through the Classic Car display (free), or visit the Exhibits and Displays (free). You will have ample opportunity to peruse Arts & Crafts from around the country while keeping hunger at bay with the many food vendors. Anxious for more? You can wander along all evening stopping at the Rail Jam (free), enjoying the Street Dance (free), and watching the fireworks.
If you’ve got the energy on Sunday you can head on back downtown and catch all the events, shows, vendors, and competitions you didn’t have time for on Saturday! And don’t forget to pick up your Riverfest T-Shirt featuring this year’s art work winner by Magon Dew. Please call 910.452.6862 or log onto their website at www.wilmingtonriverfest.com for all the details, times and events of this fabulous Wilmington, NC event. You’ll find us on Water Street (where the food is)!
