Great Weekend

This past weekend was excellent. The weather could not have been better. It was very mild and sunny, perfect for the annual Horseshoe Crab/Shorebird Festival. We spent Saturday afternoon with the Milton Lions Club. The above photo is of the Clipper Express making rounds of the park. It is such a great project. For 25¢ per person (child, adult, dog) you can ride the train as it makes three circuits around the park. The train ran 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and had over 800 riders. The club also runs the trains for the Wednesday evening concerts in the park starting the Wednesday following Memorial Day through Labor Day. At the festival the club also sold fresh lemonade and funnel cakes.

The festival was well attended and there were some fun activities including the dunk tank, a mushroom and plant walk, nature exhibition, cruise on the Broadkill River, art displays and projects, food concessions and several other activities.

Clouds Making an Appearance

There were more events for the weekend including an "Improv in the Park" by the Delaware Comedy Theater. This was held Sunday evening as was a very enjoyable event. The sun was shining brightly, the entertainment was good.
