It's that time of year again...and we love every minute of it! Founded in 1948, the North Carolina Azalea Festival is Wilmington’s annual community celebration and the largest festival of its kind in the state. From April 5th through April 9th locals and visitors can enjoy a full week of entertainment, galas, fun family events and Southern hospitality in and around the greater Wilmington area.
Azalea Fest's Garden Party is the inspiration for this week's video.
Our good friend Beth Lennon joined Mott Channel Seafood's own Alison Long to reminince about garden parties of the past and to share a great Garden Salad with Rice and Scallops recipe guaranteed to help fuel you throughout the week's social events.
If you carefully watch our latest video you will notice some subtle (and some not-so-subtle) changes between "scenes." Think you can name them all? Send us an email (click here) by Friday, April 7th and let us know what changes you observed. The person who guesses them all first will win a FREE Motts Channel Seafood t-shirt and hat.
