I disagree with the comment above by Sefa. Regarding, Queen Azalea, Lindsey Shaw being a fake. She has graciously agreed to come to Wilmington to a part of a 63 years of tradition to our Beautiful Port city. She is doing so, with out, charging the festival any type of apperance fee, that is a regular part of celebrity apperances. Although, she may not be a huge Silver screen name.. she still deserves to be shown our appreciation,and gratitude.As she graciously serves as this years queen. The festival brings in a lot of money to our city every year. from locals, and vistors. This is good for our economy and trickles down to our shops, restuarants and hotels. Shame on people with such negative thoughts. Wilmington is proud of our rich southern heritage, and manners. Comments such as Sefa's make us look rude and ignorant! I hope Miss. Shaw will forgive such comments, and know that the people of Wilmington welcome her with open hearts and arms. Evidentely she cares alot about people in general. Several years ago, Queen Sidney Penny came to Wilmington for the first time, feel in love with our City so much she purchased a historical home down town. Other stars, such as Linda Lavin and Neil Curtis have also made Wilmington thier home. Sefa, perhaps it is YOU who does not care about the People of Wilmington or how our attitudes and behaviors affect them!
