As we continue making our way through the offseason here at the Delaware and Maryland beaches, we have several fun and family-friendly events coming up over the next few weeks. That includes this second weekend of February.
This weekend’s events calendar is highlight by the annual “Winter Jam” at the Rusty Rudder in Dewey Beach. This is a fun time and a chance to raise money for several programs of the Cape Henlopen School District, so head to the Rudder this Friday night and have some fun, while also supporting a great cause.
Other events we’re featuring this weekend are in Rehoboth Beach and Milton. We invite you to keep reading below for much more on what you can do over the next few days to defeat the winter blahs.
