There really aren’t any perks for the Azalea Queen, said Gloria Ezzell, queen coordinator for the Azalea Festival.

“She doesn’t get paid. She gets her gown that she wears on the float and of course the week of being here,” Ezzell said.

The festival foots the bills for the queen to travel to and from Wilmington and she gets room and board for the week, she said.


Why does the Azalea Festival choose queens that have no connection to the Wilmington area?

How come the convention center was not used for the Azalea Festival concerts?
