Easter Events and the 2021 Winter Jam on the Calendar This Weekend at the Delaware and Maryland Beaches
With warmer days over the last couple of weeks, Spring Fever is starting to take over here in the coastal regions of both Delaware and Maryland. We're excited about that and we hope you are too!
And with the COVID-19 vaccination programs ramping up in both states, there's considerable more optimism for a traditional 2021 summer season than there was even just a month ago.
In the meantime, keep supporting our locally owned and operated businesses and restaurants as much as you can, so when things do get back to normal they'll still be open and ready to welcome us all back with open arms.
Okay, on to this weekend! We actually have some fun things to tell you about for the March 26-28 time period here in coastal Delaware, as well as one event just over the state line in Ocean City.
So pick your favorite and have a great weekend! And keep thinking good thoughts for a fantastic Summer of 2021 here at the beaches.
We begin this week with a virtual event held in support of the Cape Henlopen School District...
Winter Jam 2021 (March 26)
I know we may sound like a broken record at this point, but this year's Winter Jam will be a virtual event due to COVID-19 restrictions that are in place in Delaware.
But just because it's virtual doesn't mean it won't be a good time, with all money raised being donated to a worthwhile local cause.
The 2021 Winter Jam to support the Cape Henlopen School District will be a live streaming event taking place at Mid South Audio. Scheduled guests include Master of Ceremonies Paul Williams of WRDE, the Blue Label Band, Delaware's own Jimmie Allen and a couple more.
A virtual live auction will also be taking place, with all money raised going to support several programs within the school district.
Georgetown Drive-Thru Easter (March 27)
It may not be a traditional Easter Egg Hunt this year, but don't let the coronavirus keep you and your kids from having a great time in the Seat of Sussex County.
Sponsored by the Greater Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Georgetown, this 9 to 11 a.m., event on Saturday, March 27, will feature a couple of "furry creatures with long floppy ears" hanging out on The Circle and sharing goodie bags with all area children who stop by for a visit.
It's a ride-by event and will continue until either 11 a.m., or until all 6,000 eggs have been distributed to happy Sussex County children.
