Azalea Festival Kick Off at Brightmore of Wilmington
April 6, 2017The Brightmore Campus kicked off the 70th Anniversary of the NC Azalea Festival in style with our very own Azalea Festival Garden Party! It was a beautiful afternoon for our residents complete with all the trimmings of a successful Garden Party…Mint Julep punch, spring cookies, delicious finger sandwiches, fabulous jazz music by the Darryl Murrill Duo, a caricaturist, photo area with beautiful flowers, an Azalea Belle, and to top it off, a horse and carriage that was definitely a hit. For those of our residents who are Wilmington natives, this was a great way to celebrate the Azalea Festival for which our city is famous. It also brought about some great memories they had of being a part of the Wilmington Garden Club, the famous annual Garden Party and walking through all the beautiful gardens in Wilmington!
