Tens of thousands of people enjoy the Azalea Festival's concerts, fairs and special events each year and organizers need your help to make it happen this year. The Cape Fear Volunteer Center is partnering with Azalea Festival organizers in an effort to find the hundreds of the volunteers they need.
Even with the looming winter weather this weekend, the Wilmington Garden Show was still in full bloom at Cape Fear Community College's Schwartz Center. Lots of gardeners showed up to learn new tips and to scope out some unique landscape ideas. Some people said it felt like the first sign of spring.
With the temperatures in the 70s and, in some cases, the 80s, people say spring arrived with daylight saving. But some local businesses say the hour they lost is not the only thing throwing off their business plan.
