This weekend will be a busy one in Bladen County. Many events are set to take place, including the Dublin Peanut Festival Pageant, a triathlon at the Grand Regal in White Lake, “Patriot’s Day” at Moores Creek, and more.
This weekend also marks a dark day in history. Tomorrow, Saturday, September 11th, marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that shook the nation to its core.
Although it is a sad day, it is an opportunity to remember those who were victims, and thank those who serve to protect. A community gathering and patriotic service will take place on the Bladen County Courthouse Lawn tomorrow, September 11th, at 7 pm. For more information, read more: bladen-county-remembers-20th-
Additionally, a free country music concert featuring Parmalee will take place at The Grand Regal at White Like on Saturday. Saturday’s lineup will include Garrett Biggs, RT Johnson, and Parmalee.
