The weather is beginning to heat up for the spring season here on North Carolina’s Crystal Coast— and so is the event calendar! Beginning this weekend, there are dozens of ways to celebrate spring in Beaufort, Newport, Havelock, Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, Emerald Isle and the surrounding areas. If you will be visiting Coastal Carolina or are ready to get out and explore, consider the following events happening this season.
Carolina Home and Garden Spring Fling
