Just a short drive from Seawatch, the historic waterfront town of Southport, North Carolina is hosting its Spring Festival this weekend, April 22nd and 23rd in Franklin Square Park. Over 100 artists and crafters, mostly local, will showcase their coastal artwork from 10 am to 5 pm on Friday and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday. Great finds for your beach-themed cottage or special tokens from the coast can be found throughout the show. Sea life pottery, handmade jewelry, and coastal themed artwork are just a few favorites. Also, be sure to get your ticket for the annual Robert Rourk Chili CookOff contest from 11 am to 2 pm on Saturday…it is going to be a fun way to spend the day.
