It is that time of year again. Riverfest begins today and continues through the weekend along Wilmington’s historic river front. Along with spring’s Azalea Festival, fall’s Riverfest is one of the highlights for the year for family fun in southeastern North Carolina.
Wilmington is just a short drive north of our real estate community. Rivers Edge residents enjoy going up to Wilmington for shopping, arts, food and fun year round but during Riverfest friends and neighbors get together to do it all at the festival. Join us for 2009 Riverfest October 3-4.
The majority of the activities are free and family oriented. Beginning at 8am, the kids’ zone has a multitude of activities designed to keep your children healthy and active while preserving the ultimate goal: fun. A recent addition to River Fest is the Invasion of the Pirates! In an effort to put more “river” into River Fest, it won’t be uncommon to see swashbucklers amidst the crowd. Everyone is encouraged to dress in their own pirate garb and enter the pirate costume contest. In addition, there will also be a treasure hunt, a great way to bring the whole family together.
Riverfest features 160 craft vendors, concessions, fireworks, and exhibits. The river event takes place along the downtown Riverwalk.
