Stars (and Stripes) Align This Weekend!

 

If you’re from Delaware, you know we’re “The First State” for many reasons. We were ‘first’ to ratify the Constitution, and we are (in our humble opinions) FIRST when it comes to celebrating our nation’s independence. History is written every year as Delaware’s beaches continue to top themselves, year over year, with amazing July 4th celebrations.

 

DISCLAIMER: If you are visiting for the weekend and thinking of buying a Delaware beach house, this July 4 may very well seal the deal!

 

This year, the weekend’s activities are spread out quite nicely with Rehoboth Beach fireworks on Sunday night, July 3, and the good ole fashioned “Norman Rockwell” festivities in Lewes on Monday, July 4.

If it sounds too good to be true, it is – but so is Delaware!

Here’s what’s in store (by no means "all-inclusive" but here are some highlights).

Grab an ice-cold beverage, ice cream cone, or whatever floats your boat (which will also be on display in the Lewes Boat Parade!...), and join the fun!

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness at the Beach!

Delaware is “The First State” for many reasons. As all Delaware history students know, it was literally ‘first’ to ratify the Constitution.  We have a rich history throughout our state – from Sussex up to New Castle County.  

Delaware is always first in my book for celebrating Independence Day.  History is written every year as Delaware’s beaches continue to top themselves, year over year, with amazing July 4th celebrations.

If you are visiting and thinking of buying a home at Delaware’s Beach communities, this July 4 may seal the deal!

Don’t forget:


All Day:

Kids’ fun and games on Second Street in Lewes

Starting at 5 p.m.

World Famous Doo Dah Parade!

Find your spot along Kings Highway, Second Street or Savannah Road for the most classic American Hometown parade ever assembled.  Or, line up by Lloyd’s IGA grocery store to join in the parade yourself! 

Tonight:

Rehoboth Beach Main Street sponsors amazing fireworks

Dewey Beach goes for the Guinness Book World Record for fireworks

Lewes Beach offers triple views (clear-sky dependent) of displays from Broadkill to Cape May – and even Rehoboth sometimes…

We know how to throw a birthday party! If you are in Lewes for July 4, you will get swept up in truly the most classic Norman Rockwell portrayal of what it means to be in American for our nation’s Independence Day.  If it sounds too good to be true, it is – but so is Delaware! 

Thank you to all of our military veterans – from Delaware and throughout the nation – for securing our “life, liberty and pursuit of happiness” year-round.

Happy July 4, 2013 from The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group
