WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Fourth of July is always a time for celebration, but for some area businesses it's a time for work.

At Kilwins Ice Cream, Chocolates and Fudge in downtown Wilmington, there was a line out the door and across the street for the majority of the night.

It's their busiest day of the year.

We spoke with one employee who thinks the wait in line is worth it.

"It's perfect, it's hot outside, it's nice so then they just cool off with some lemonade and some ice cream," said Carilyn Soukup. "It's the best day you could have, I think."

Kilwins was open and serving customers until at least midnight.
