The North Carolina Azalea Festival transformed downtown this weekend. The streets were filled with hand-crafted goods of all kinds, choices of face painting, faux tattoos, caricatures, skateboarding demo, crazy dangerous motorcycle demo, bbq, Hawaiian Ice, and one of my personal favorites, funnel cake (topped with caramel). The weather was gorgeous, the wind (at times) was fierce, and the crowd of people quite pleasant. This festival originally began in 1948, and well, they've done it again. Thanks Wilmington for such a fun way to celebrate the arts and ring in the Spring season.
