WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A television show that wrapped just over five years ago holds a fan base like no other.
One Tree Hill filmed in Wilmington for nine years, from 2003-2012. To this day, fans come from all over to see the iconic filming locations around town. This weekend, fanatics will have the chance to do much more than that, at the EyeCon fan event.
The 4th EyeCon ‘Return to Tree Hill’ convention is happening at the Wilmington Convention Center from Friday to Sunday. EyeCon started the events in 2015 and have had thousands of fans show up each time.
The convention features three days of star-studded fun with actors and actresses from the locally filmed TV show. Fans can purchase different levels of tickets to attend Q & A sessions, meet and greets, a concert, and even a dinner banquet.
One of the most talked about parts of this particular convention is that actress Sophia Bush, who played Brooke Davis, will be in attendance. This is Bush’s first time attending a fan convention.
Notably absent will be Chad Michael Murray. According to the StarNews, Murray will be absent because he and his wife are expecting a baby. However, EyeCon has confirmed he will be attending the second convention of the year, in October.
