Holden Beach kicks off vacation season with Days at the Dock

Monday, April 28th, 2014

HOLDEN BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Holden Beach kicked off vacation season with the annual Days at the Docks this weekend.

More than 50 arts & crafts vendors lined up under the bridge. A dozen food vendors set up and provided plenty of fried treats.

The free festival had live music and tournaments throughout the weekend.

Mayor Alan Holden says this year was bigger and better than ever.

“It’s just an opportunity for families to come down and get their beach houses ready,” he said. “The stores open up and get ready for the season, and it’s a good time to get over this bad weather we’ve been having. Everybody’s got beach fever.”

And of course the mayor tossed over the apples for the famous “bopple race.” Numbered boat apples are released over the bridge to float on the Intracoastal Waterway toward the finish line for a prize.

EUE/Screen Gems Studios reopens doors to public

Monday, April 28th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) –- Movie lovers and TV enthusiasts can now get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into creating on screen magic.

This weekend EUE/ Screen Gems Studios reopened its doors to the public with tours of the 10 stage working lot.

“They will share stories and history,” said Pamela Stilwell, Director of Tours.

EUE/ Screen Gems Studios offered these tours in the past, but stopped in 2011 when the series “One Tree Hill” wrapped production.

Organizers say in the last two years the studio has hosted more than 350 productions, so they have decided to start the tours back up.

“Hollywood seems to be too endearing so I wanted to come here and see it,” said Lynn Chichoski, who is visiting from New York.

The tours last one hour as guests walk through the largest studio complex East of California.

“You get to see how they do it behind-the-scenes, and what it takes to put together a whole bunch of different shots to end up with a whole show,” said Lonnie Anderson.

Tours run Saturdays and Sundays weather permitting.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children.
