WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Crews are working hard setting up for the Azalea Festival this weekend.

The 67th annual festival kicks off Wednesday with the Queen’s Coronation at the Wilmington Convention Center lawn.

In front of City Hall bleachers are already being set up to accommodate the crowds for Saturday’s parade.

The concert stage is also taking shape along N. Front St. at CFCC. It will soon be ready to host acts including Widespread Panic and Justin Moore.

And speaking of Moore, the Azalea Festival’s Thursday night concert now features a bonafide award winner. At last night’s Academy of Country Music Awards, Moore won New Artist of the Year.

Moore will share the Thursday night stage with Randy Houser and Josh Thompson.
