Vote open in Azalea Festival tagline contest


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The North Carolina Azalea Festival is looking for a tagline to describe the event, and you can help pick a winner.

After reviewing all of the submissions to the festival's Facebook contest, the entries have been narrowed down to five finalists. These top five entries are up for a vote on the festival's Facebook page starting today.

The five taglines to choose from are:

Southern Charm in Full Bloom
The Spirit of the South
Sweet Southern Fun for Everyone
The Flowers, the Fun, the Festival
Southern Hospitality at its Finest

"Each year we work to increase community involvement in the festival, but this year we wanted to do something extra special by giving someone the opportunity to share what the Festival means to them with the tagline," festival president Donna Cameron said in a news release. "It was a difficult job to narrow down all of the great entries to these five, but we are excited to open this up for voting and see which one the community chooses."

The winner of the tagline contest will receive an Azalea Festival Prize Pack valued at $450, including two VIP tickets to festival concerts, two Celebrity Reception tickets to sit at the Queen's table and entry into the Azalea Festival Parade in a car provided by the destival. Each voter will also be entered to win a Souvenir Prize Package, valued at more than $100.
