HOLDEN BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- In Holden Beach, folks looking to have some fun in the sun flocked to the 37th Annual NC Festival by the Sea.
With close to 150 vendors, this year's festival was bigger than ever before. From live music, to a car show, and even a street dance, this festival had something for everyone, especially those who like to snack on some delicious free samples.
"I basically go around to everywhere that has free samples.” Zachary Wickham, a festival attendee said. “I go in, and eat them. Like all day, I'll be eating."
But eating was not the only thing on Wickham's mind as he checked out a few vendors with his family.
They say this is their second visit to the festival this weekend, and they just can't get enough of the crafts, music, and of course, free samples.
