Soaking up the last rays of summer

Dozens of eager listeners turned out for the second annual WindMark Beach Music Festival on Saturday, gathering on lawn chairs under sunny late summer skies.

The event featured performances from four artists — The Krickets, 55 South, Longleaf Drive and Daniel Pratt.

This year, festival performances took place on three different stages, giving attendees the opportunity to explore the WindMark Beach Community Center’s businesses and outdoor spaces.

Festival-goers enjoyed cold beer, food from local establishments and a good time outdoors with friends and neighbors.
