Southport's Winterfest offers several holiday events through weekend


SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) -- The Christmas spirit has spread to Southport as the town celebrates Winterfest.

The 10-day celebration includes many events such as Santa's workshop, a children's tree lighting and craft festival.

WWAY's Jerry Jackson spent the day giving his forecasts from the event, where kids from Southport Elementary School sang a variety of Christmas carols.

Southport Mayor Robert Howard says it's a great time for folks to check out the town.

"Our merchants have prepared for the Winterfest so you're invited to walk around downtown through the walking trails," Mayor Howard said.

Winterfest runs through the weekend with many events scheduled including a flotilla and Tour of Homes on Saturday.
