FEBRUARY 12, 2005 -- Even though this year's Azalea Festival doesn't kick-off for another 2 months, that doesn't mean the celebration has to wait.

Hundreds attended a pre-festival party at the Hilton Riverside in Downtown Wilmington Saturday night.  The band Sleeping Booty entertained the crowd.  The party was a fundraiser for this year's festival which will take place April 6-10.

Earlier this week, the festival announced former Baywatch star Kelly Packard will be this year's queen.  Country star Travis Tritt will also perform.
