WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT.COM)The Wilmington Symphony held a 'Spooky Sound Paddle Fest' Saturday morning at Wrightsville Beach, with money raised going to benefit the youth symphony and junior strings.
A costume contest, paddleboard races, and dance to Michael Jackson's Thriller highlighted the event.
"I'm a real avid paddleboarder, and I do yoga on the paddleboard, and I suggested it and everyone looked at me like I lost my mind at first," said Lesa Broadhead, chair of the symphony special events committee. "But everyone's gotten on board, literally, and it's been a lot of fun."
