Several Great Events Featured This April Weekend in Delaware, Maryland and Southeastern Pennsylvania
We've got several great local events to tell you about today in our latest "Weekender Blog," brought to you every week by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty.
But our definition of the term "local" is changing this week as we expand our weekly blog to include all of the areas in which the Oldfather Group currently has a presence.
And that means all of Delaware, parts of southeastern Pennsylvania and the Annapolis region, in addition to our continuing coverage of the Delaware and Maryland beaches.
We'll be expanding this new format in the coming weeks, as the weather continues to warm and more outdoor events are scheduled in all of the above areas.
But for now, enjoy the five featured events we have on the calendar for this week, as well as an interactive map at the end of this blog that features events coming up for the rest of the month of April.
This week, we're promoting three events in the coastal region as well as one in New Castle County and another in Maryland's capital city of Annapolis.
We begin with exciting news from the owners of Funland, everyone's favorite family place on the beautiful Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk:
Funland Opening Weekend Tickets on Sale Now (April 8). As they do most years, Funland will be opening its doors on Mother's Day Weekend, which this year is on Saturday, May 8.
While there are hopes that a return to normal will happen at some point this summer, visits will be by reservation only for at least the early part of the season via the "Fun Pass" organizers introduced last year during the pandemic.
Dates for May will be available beginning on Thursday, April 8, with additional dates released at a later time.
For more information and/or to make reservations, visit Funland online by clicking here.
Jeep Jamboree Quarantine Cookout (April 9-10). The annual Jeep Jamboree won't be what it normally is thanks to the COVID related restrictions that are in place, but organizers are making the most of a bad situation.
For the 2021 event at Trap Pond State Park, plans are to have a "Jeep Jamboree Quarantine Cookout," which will still give participants a chance to show off their jeeps while camping and fellowshipping in a safe and responsible way.
A $10 registration fee will include an official 2021 tee shirt and admission to all of the fun. Keep in mind that this year's event will be open only to individuals who are staying at the campground at Trap Pond.
Visit www.trappondpartners.com for more information on this year's Jeep Jamboree.
Conclusion of Annual Kite Fest (April 9-10). This year's annual kite festival at Brandywine Creek State Park in Wilmington is definitely different than most years, but people still seem to be enjoying themselves during the 2021 Kite Fest.
The annual event concludes this Friday and Saturday, but there's still plenty of time to head out to the park and have some family friendly fun.
To participate in this year's self-guided festival, simply enjoy a day of kite flying at the park and then send us your photos via the event page on Facebook. Or you can simply write "Okay to Share" in photos that you post on your own page.
Annapolis Arts Alliance Annual Petite Squares Exhibit (April 9-17). If you enjoy viewing miniature pieces of art, then make plans to visit Wimsey Cove Framing & Fine Art Printing in Annapolis for the eighth annual exhibit of tiny artwork.
Building on this year's theme of "A New Day," the event features exhibits of artwork that's no more than 12 inches in size and is enjoyed by participants every year in Maryland's capital city.
The exhibit began in mid-March but continues to run through Saturday, April 17.

Milton Theater Shows (April 9-11). There continue to be great shows every weekend at the Milton Theatre.
Just keep in mind that attendance is still limited due to social distancing requirements. So if you see a show you’d like to attend, buy your tickets as soon as possible.
Here’s what’s coming up this weekend at the Milton Theatre.
- Friday, April 9 at 8 p.m. – Aunt Mary Pat DiSabatino
- Saturday, April 10 at 8 p.m. – Best Friend's Girl, The #1 CARS Experience
