The First Friday Gallery Walk in Southport, NC has become an institution. The walk always offers interesting artistic treasures, featured artists, good food, wine and spirits to all who attend. But at the gallery walk this Friday (September 7, 2018) Franklin Square Gallery, a non-profit, cooperative gallery, will have something very special going on. It will focus on the upcoming (September 29) Wooden Boat Show. Earlier in the year, members of the gallery were busy painting images of wooden boats in the hopes that their painting might be chosen to be displayed on the Wooden Boat Show T-shirts. All entries were submitted and a winner was chosen. This year’s winner is Tony Alderman, for “She Stood the Test” – a painting of one of the iconic, and slowly disappearing, shrimp boats that we are privileged to see plying the waters in Southeastern NC. You will be able to see the original painting, meet the artist and enjoy a display of the other entries at this Friday’s gallery walk from 5 PM until 7 PM.

WEEKEND!

Hi folks! I’m ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ck! Due to technical difficulties I’ve been off the blog site for most of September. But remember, you can always find information at our website (www.insiderinfo.us) or on our facebook page: Southport, Oak Island, Bald Head Island, NC – Insiderinfo.

The gorgeous Fall weather always brings a plethora of outdoor events and festivals to Brunswick County, NC and this weekend is no exception. No exception, that is, except for the weather forecast. The temperatures are lovely, but we seem to be getting our sunshine in liquid form. Saturday’s line-up did include the annual, exciting Intercultural Festival, however, it has been canceled this year due to the weather. Another wonderful event that is scheduled is the Southport Wooden Boat Show which is scheduled to take place rain or shine.

Stewart’s Hardware in Southport has announced a Fall Fun Day from 9 AM until 5 PM and the Oak Island Moose Lodge has planned an Oktoberfest from 4:30 PM until 8:30 PM. You may want to check with them directly to be sure these events will be taking place. There is always music in the evenings at the Yacht Basin Eatery and at Fishy Fishy Cafe, both in Southport, NC.

On Sunday, the First Bank Oktoberfest 15K & 5K is scheduled in Brunswick Forest in Leland NC. Then there is always a good thing to do on a rainy day – take in a movie. Between Surf Cinemas, in Southport, NC and Coastal Stadium 10, in Shallotte, NC, you are sure to find a movie you have been wanting to see.
