A few Smithville Woods families decided to have a golf cart parade through their neighborhood, and the news spread fast. At 10 in the morning on the 4th of July, golf carts, Jeeps, tractors, and bikes lined up and proceeded down Robert Ruark Drive and honked and beeped its way through Smithville Woods. They were greeted with smiling faces and cheers.
The golf cart convoy also took to the streets and followed the traditional parade route through the heart of Southport to spread some more joy! It was so much fun the neighborhood is planning on making it a tradition for years to come!
Holiday vacationers to Southport during the 4th of July week will be treated to a parade of container ships on their way to the Wilmington ports. The Pavo J and the Hyundai Dream, which will be making appearances on July 1, 2020 and July 5, 2020, respectively, will most certainly be an impressive sight. Visit the Marine Traffic website (www.marinetraffic.com) for updates on the vessels’ routes or follow the Cape Fear River Ship Watchers Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/capefearships) for some awesome pictures and videos.
