Greetings and welcome to another edition of the “Weekender Blog,” brought to you each week by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty.
We haven’t used that opening greeting in awhile, but we wanted to do so today because we’ll soon be updating our most popular weekly blog and giving it a bit of a facelift.
With that facelift, which we expect to fully integrate sometime in the next few weeks, we will also be giving the “Weekender” a new name.
The “Coastal Compass” will continue to be your one-stop source for everything that’s happening at the Delaware and Maryland beaches. We will continue telling you everything you need to know for maximizing your life along the coast, whether you live here full-time or are just visiting for a few days.
And if you’re just visiting for a few days but are interested in making the coastal region your home, whether year-round or just during the warm weather season, be sure to give us a ring at 302-260-2000. We’ve helped hundreds of people over the years make the move to the Delaware and Maryland beaches, and we can help you too!
Okay on to this week’s blog, but be on the lookout for the new “Coastal Compass” coming your way after the first of the year.
Now, here’s our very own Mariya Oldfather with a video preview of this weekend’s activities.
Here are our top choices for the weekend of December 14-16 at the Delaware and Maryland beaches:
Holiday Tea at the Milton Theatre (December 16). The historic Milton Theatre will be hosting their annual holiday tea this Sunday, December 16, beginning at 2 p.m.
This is an interactive show and will include several characters associated with the holidays, including the Grinch, Elsa from the movie “Frozen” and many others. Light snacks will be served, along with either hot or cold tea.
Tickets for this fun holiday show for the entire family are $13 and can be purchased here.
Winter Vendor and Craft Show (December 15). If you’ve put off your Christmas shopping until the last minute and are in need of some gifts for family and/or friends, then stop by Cape Henlopen High School this Saturday, December 15, for the annual “Winter Vendor and Craft Show.”
There will be approximately 60 vendors on hand to help you out with those last minute shopping ideas. The event is scheduled to last from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., and all proceeds go to benefit the good work being done at the Sussex Consortium.
Vienna Boys Choir at RBCC (December 14). The world-renowned Vienna Boys Choir will be making a single appearance this weekend at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center, on Friday evening at 7 p.m.
Hailed as one of the finest vocal ensembles in the world for more than 500 years, the choir will be singing yuletide favorites to get you into the spirit of the holidays.
In addition to holiday songs, the performance will also include Austrian folk songs, classical masterpieces, popular songs and much more.
Tickets for this one-time event are $49 and can be purchased online here. Call 410-798-6304 for more information.
Weekender Wonderland Week 3 (December 15). This Saturday marks the third of four “Weekend Wonderland” events in the quiet resort of Bethany Beach.
Events will be happening all day, beginning with an “Elf on the Shelf Scavenger Hunt” at 10 a.m. and running until 4 p.m. Other events for this Saturday include a chance to decorate your “ugly sweater” cookies, carriage rides around the resort, a canned food drive, chances to meet Santa Claus and caroling on the Boardwalk from 5 to 6 p.m.
More information on the Weekend Wonderland event in Bethany Beach can be found here.
Holiday Drop and Shop (December 15). If you need to do some last-minute shopping for the kids without their observant little eyes following your every move, the Rehoboth Art League has a great event this Saturday that you might be interested in.
Dubbed “Holiday Drop and Shop,” this is a chance for you to drop off your children (ages 5 to 10) at the Art League for a few hours while you brave the last-minute holiday shopping frenzy.
Scheduled activities for the children include painting, drawing and creating art projects inspired by the holiday season, all under the watchful eyes of qualified art instructors.
The cost for this event is $60 and registration is required at www.rehobothartleague.org or by calling 302-227-8408, extension 112.
Whatever you choose to do this weekend, we hope you have a fun and exciting few days in the coastal region.
And be sure to check back here next week in our “Weekender Blog” for more great happenings at and near the Delaware and Maryland beaches.
Have a great weekend everyone!
