Honey Festival
Tabor City's Yam Man hangs out at the Honey Festival in Whiteville

Rain was in the forecast for the 2022 Honey Festival in downtown Whiteville, but at 10 a.m., the sun come out to play for attendees to enjoy the rest of the afternoon. Bee vendors, non-profits, and even the Tabor City Yam Man were all present for the event. Shizzy’s Wildcat Rescue was even there to answer the age old question about why Pooh Bear liked honey and why Tigger didn’t.

The NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Whiteville had their Second Saturday Storytime outside for everyone and kept their doors open for the children and their families to enjoy.
