Dust off your dancing shoes and fancy foot moves. There is no time to waste! Save the date: Sunday, August 28.
Celebrate an endless summer of memories and benefit the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History as it swings to the memory of Lumina Pavilion, North Carolina's iconic pleasure palace, with the return of Lumina Daze live from the Blockade Runner Beach Resort.
