The weather is warming up and we could not be more excited to get out and enjoy it! We are so thankful that events are making a comeback so there is no shortage of choices of entertainment around town. The biggest struggle is just choosing where to start!
Everyone’s favorite Greek Festival is back starting May 14th! The Drive-Thru Wilmington Greek Festival is the perfect excuse to indulge in some authentic Greek food while learning about the Greek culture, faith and heritage. It is free to drive thru but impossible to leave without filling up on an entrée or two. Not to mention their legendary pastries!
Who isn’t dying to get out and hear some live music?! And just as soon as the outside mask mandate ends too! The Port City Music Festival is right around the corner and we can’t wait!

Kiddos acting like wild animals after being cooped up for so long? Take them to Family Farm Day and let them hang out with other wild animals and burn off some energy at the Children’s Museum!
