Greetings everyone, and welcome once again to our "Weekender Blog," as always brought to you by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty, for two years running the top real estate firm in southern Delaware in terms of buyer represented sales.
We're going to be placing our weekly events-centered blog on hiatus for the off-season after next week, but we'll still be posting a few "special events" entries throughout the winter months, featuring things like the "Winter Wonderfest" in Lewes and both the Chocolate Festival and the Polar Bear Plunge in Rehoboth Beach.
And we also have some great things to tell you about for the next couple of weeks, before everyone begins settling in for the winter. Here's our very own Chuck Seaman to tell you more about what's happening this weekend here in the coastal region.
This weekend's events calendar is dominated by the 5th Annual Veteran's Day Parade, just a short drive from the beach, in the town of Laurel. This is a great way of paying tribute to the veterans of our military, so consider stopping by if you have a chance.
Read more about this below, of course, as well as a few other fun activities scheduled for the next few days in the coastal region.
Now, here are our choices for the weekend of Nov. 10-12 in and near coastal Delaware...
Fifth Annual Eastern Shore Veteran's Day Parade (Nov. 12). American Legion Post 19 in Laurel will host this fifth annual parade, on Sunday, Nov. 12, in downtown Laurel.
Just a short drive from the beach, the parade will feature high school marching bands, civic organizations, youth and business floats and much more.
The theme for this year's salute to our veterans is "We Don’t Know Them All, But We Thank Them All.”
