There will also be live demonstrations by master chainsaw carver and award-winning sculptor, Marlin Miller. A fourth generation artist, he has developed a unique style of sculpting marine life into driftwood. His work is on display in galleries and the homes of private collectors around the world.
For two-wheel enthusiasts, "Hogs n Hens for Hope" offers a Motorcycle Ride for a "Life" Time departing at 11:00 a.m. from the Duplin County Events Center, to the New River Harley-Davidson/Buell dealership in Jacksonville (where lunch and refreshments will be served), then on to Topsail Beach and back to the events center. The $50 per rider fee includes the ride and refreshments, along with admission to the festival plus a commemorative T-shirt and a full plate of barbecue. All proceeds from the ride benefit Lazarex.
For folks not inclined to hop on their 'hog' and ride, many celebrated local artisans will be on hand at the event to display and sell their colorful, high-quality arts and crafts, and two-time North Carolina goose calling champion Allen Bliven will be on hand to demonstrate his famous duck and goose calls.
The Duplin County Events Center is located on HWY 11 in Kenansville across from James Sprunt Community College within a few miles of HWY 24, HWY 903, HWY 50 and Interstate 40.
Tickets to "Hogs n Hens for Hope" are available through Ticketmaster or at the Duplin County Events Center on Saturday, October 17. To register for the motorcycle ride, call Bill Johnson (910) 289-8407. For further information visit www.Lazarex.org.
