We seem to have become addicted to all things "festival"
Yes indeed there is a strawberry festival in Wallace on 5/11 but THE strawberry festival - yes THE - 79th ANNUAL strawberry festival is in Chadborn.
Please keep your festivals straight Chadborn is "it" the Alpha and Omega of strawberry festivals :-)
Then there's THE blueberry festival in Burgaw sometime in June I believe.
So the Big Squeeze is in the next 6 weeks at Duplin Winery? I went there once, and toured the facility. I'm not one for the sweeter wines but I suppose they were "OK".
As for the stadium referendum now I'm mad because the bond failed.
Imagine having a "Braves Festival" - floats in a parade, ball girls for Braves Queen, naming a bat boy King? I'm sure the local sandwhich shoppes can come up with a Braves Hoagie, or Braves Burger or even a Braves hot dog. What an economic juggernaut that would be eh?
Ah well it's good for a laugh, but the Azalea Queen nominating process has taken on a life of it's own and our continued fascination with "stars" (especially reality stars) is making the festival seem even more "hokie" than it actually is! But the local hoi polloi seem to revel in this rubbing elbows with "C" list stars.
I guess for us "C" list stars are what we deserve.......
