BURGAW, NC (WWAY) — Hundreds of people came out to enjoy the event that continues to grow each year. This was the 14th annual festival and there was something for everyone to enjoy.
Events included music, a 5K, shagging contest, food and of course lots and lots of blueberries.
The town was excited to celebrate in their favorite shade of blue, despite the weather.
“It was a little bit rainier then we had hoped, but it’s been a lot of fun. It brings the community together, it brings people in the Burgaw, which is really good. You want to bring others in show them what a great community we are in,” 2017 Miss NC Blueberry Festival Queen Kayleigh Riker said.
If you missed out on the fun this year, the festival is every year on the third Saturday in June.
