WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Spring is in the air, and that means WWAY is on the road!

Your favorite TV station in southeastern North Carolina is starting another #ThisIsThePlace Roadtrip. Last spring we visited and profiled seven towns around our area. This time we’ll be visiting 10 events around the region.

Our first stop is Southport for the Southport Spring Festival! Randy Aldridge will be LIVE in Franklin Square Park during WWAY NEWS at Noon as the festival gets going.

Then tonight Amanda Fitzpatrick will broadcast Good Evening Wilmington LIVE from Waterfront Park with special guests and stories from Kirsten Gutierrez about what Southport has to offer this spring and summer, as well as a preview of this weekend’s 200th birthday celebration for Old Baldy Lighthouse just across the Cape Fear River on Bald Head Island.

So tune in to check out what’s going on, or if you’re in the area, stop by and meet the team.

Help us show why #ThisIsThePlace so many of us love to call home!
