Chili and chicken wings highlight annual Havelock festival

Published: Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 04:51 PM.

Community groups,  including dancers from the Havelock Center for the Performing Arts and students from the ATA Martial Arts, will be performing at a secondary stage. The festival will also feature Civil War re-enactors, an automotive display from Nationwide NASCAR and Amato Insurance, and Cindy Miller, radio personality from WSFL-FM 106.5.

For those not interested in chili or wings, other food vendors will have fish, barbecue, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, funnel cakes, shaved ice, pizza, ribs and lumpia.

Plenty of commercial vendors and informational booths will also be stationed on the festival grounds.

Admission and parking are free.

This year, as a promotion for the festival, the Havelock Chamber of Commerce sent around a giant three-foot silver spoon.

“It went into surgery at CarolinaEast (Medical Center),” Duncan said. “The Cherry Point Young Marines showed it how to be a Marine, dressed it up in boots and everything. It’s done reading hour at the library here in Havelock.”

The spoon will be at the festival both days.
