New River Banks Party
Memorial Day Sunday, May 25, 2008
10:oo am ~ 4:00 pm
Water Front Park, Downtown Jacksonville
This picture is of a gathering of people on the banks of the New River in Jacksonville, North Carolina (circa 1905). Like in days of old... people will gather once again on the banks of the New River at Water Front Park near the Pellitier House in downtown Jacksonville. Take a boat ride, meet authors, watch artists, artisans, and traditional crafters at work, listen to local music and storytellers, and for the first time there will be a Seafood Chowder Cook Off. With the exception of a bowl of chowder... the celebration party is FREE to the public! Make plans to attend...
OPPS artists will position themselves around the park and the historic Pellitier House painting en plein aire for one of their monthly "paint outs" from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.
See you there...
