Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This weekend tennis legend Lenny Simpson will welcome the top doubles tennis team in the world, the Bryan brothers, into Trask Coliseum for an exhibition match. It’s to raise money for Simpson’s One Love tennis program.

Tickets are still available.

Simpson says One Love takes Wilmington’s youth and serves them the skills needed to ace life on and off the court.

“I’m trying to give back the same way that those people here and other places have done for me,” Simpson said. “It’s all about mentoring. It’s all about role models. This is how kids get a chance to succeed in anything.”

One Love mentors up to 500 kids around the Port City, and if you would like to get your child involved, spots are still available.

Bulkhead work forces move of Wilmington Christmas tree

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — In downtown Wilmington, the city Christmas tree is in a new location this year.

Instead of its traditional home in Riverfront Park, it is across the street in the open lot at the corner of Princess and Water streets.

The city had to change spots because of weight restrictions in the park due to work on the bulkhead underneath. Kim Adams with the city says the Christmas tree has a two-ton concrete block anchoring it.

When work is done, future events will move back to Riverfront Park.
