WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The 4th EyeCon ‘Return to Tree Hill’ convention is happening at the Wilmington Convention Center through Sunday.
EyeCon started the events in 2015 and have had thousands of fans show up each time. Fans were able 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, was in attendance. This was Bush’s first time attending a fan convention.
EyeCon promoter Autumn Nierode says the celebrities are always creating new ways to interact with fans.
“They come and really enjoy experience fully and they come up with own ideas like Antwon has his own party and Brett has a pizza party,” Nierode said. “It’s just amazing that they care so much about the fans that they are trying to give them new experiences.”
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.
Tickets are selling quickly, with some meet and greet opportunities already sold out. For purchase information, click here.
