WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Downtown Wilmington businesses saw a boost in business after the Beach2Battleship Triathlon competitors crossed the finish line.
Restaurants and bar employees say triathletes celebrated locally.
"We were part of the Saturday Riverfront Market and we saw a lot of people from out of town," said Riverfront Market Coordinator Suzette Hawley. "It's really been great for business this weekend."
Some business owners say they are already looking forward to the race next year.
