There are lots of fun things to do this weekend in Brunswick County, NC – from the Rice Festival in Belville, NC to the Purple Feet Festival in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. The Rice Festival is a two day festival, held in the Riverwalk that celebrates the heritage of rice growing in the area. The Purple Feet Festival is held at the Silver Coast Winery and includes grape stomping and a Lucy look-alike contest. On Saturday, you will find fun for the whole family at Big Toy Day at the Cape Fear Regional Jetport in the Town of Oak Island, NC. Your kids and grandkids can earn their wings and be introduced to the fun of flying with free small aircraft flights at this event.

The Brunswick County Intercultural Festival will be held at Brunswick Community College in Supply, NC on Saturday with their fare of food, dance, arts, drumming, storytelling and more. A special addition this year will be held at the Odell Williamson Auditorium on Sunday evening at 7 PM with the presentation of the African Children’s Choir in a free concert.

I would like to personally invite everyone to come out on Sunday afternoon to the celebration of International Peace Day on the Fort Johnston lawn in Southport, NC. With all the turmoil in the nation and in the world, it is important that we take every opportunity we can to send peace out into the universe. Please join me.
