It’s a “Where’s Wilmington?” double feature for you. This week Lisa Kapala celebrated her 100th episode of “Where’s Wilmington?” Lisa walks you through how the show has changed over the years, but also has held true to its original goal of bringing you the stories of Wilmington's interesting people and organizations. In the 101st episode, Wilmington's Harnden Tavern & The Minutemen talk to Lisa about holding their annual Harvest Festival on October 30th.

Silver Lake Foliage
Last week we took video footage of the foliage at the Town Common and Rotary Park. This week we went to Silver Lake to see how beautiful the leaves reflected off the lake. We still want to see your photos/videos of foliage around your neighborhood or backyard, so that we can put them on the station. Send all your photos to either our email, Facebook message them to us, or tweet them to @Wilmington_TV. Good luck!!! Can't wait to see what you send!!!
