A Look Back at Wilmington’s Artsy, Progressive and Legacy Weekend

Banning High School Band and Drill Team perform at Wilmington Art Walk.

Wilmington weekends are full of activities these days and the Wilmington Wire wants to make sure you’re up to date on what’s happening in the neighborhood. The weekend kicked off with The Wilmington Art Walk’s Tiki Beach themed party at Banning’s Landing on Friday, which featured a special art exhibit by youth from the Boys & Girls Club, live music, food trucks, a beer garden and of course some beautiful art by local artist.

On Saturday youth came together with environmental justice group, Communities for a Better Environment, for an environmental and social justice solidarity demonstration, “Rise Like the Sun,” that started off at Wilmington’s Town Square Park. 

The weekend ended with a retirement celebration for Mr. James Woodson who trained and mentored an estimated 2,000 or more Banning High School students over 40 years. He was joined by friends, colleagues, alumni and his family, showing their appreciation and support for decades of service and dedication to Wilmington and Banning High School. His legacy will always continue to live on.
