Bridgeton Blueberry Festival Is More Than Just Berries
BRIDGETON, Craven County - The Bridgeton Blueberry Festival kicked off Saturday morning with a baking contest. The most important rule? You have to use at least one cup of blueberries, of course. Our own Donnie Cox helped judge the event, the winning dish was blueberry cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. The festival is more than just the berries, though. Games, live music and a pirate invasion were all part of the fun, and 88 vendors lined the walkways. The festival already has plans to continue next year.
