In our minds, the first and best draw for finding the Coastal Delaware home of your dreams is the fact that you will get to live in a home in Coastal Delaware. Given the natural beauty of the area, we're not sure any more incentive is needed. Some events coming up in May, however, have caught our eye, and they might just provide a little incentive to make the move.
Lewes is a beautiful little town on the DelMarVa Peninsula and they proudly bear the motto "The First Town in The First State." The picturesque quality of Lewes makes for a great visit (or perfect home) any time of the year, but be sure to drop by on May 4th for the Lewes British Motorcar Show. An amazing afternoon of springtime in Delaware, highlighted by stylish British cars and a fine fare of British cuisine. Remember, what the British call "chips," we would call "French fries." Also, what we Americans call "cars," the British call "rumbly-bumbly vroomsters." (We may be wrong on that last one.)
Head south along the coast a little bit and you'll find yourself in Dewey Beach, and for Mother's Day weekend, they will be hosting their 2nd Annual Dewey Beach Arts Fest, an outdoor juried fine arts and crafts show. If the weather holds up, the fest will take place on Saturday, May 11th, though they do have a rain day scheduled for the 12th if Mother Nature decides to have other plans. Along with the fine works of local artists, there will be food, magic shows, a children's art gallery, face painting and live music. Plus, smaller items can be gift wrapped, and it won't even look like you waited until the last minute for that Mother's Day gift.
Of course, if you're a bit too busy that weekend, you can head to Rehoboth Beach the following weekend for their Seaside Fine Art Show on May 18th. From what we can tell, this event has less face painting, so you may want to take the kids to the event in Dewey Beach, and then find a babysitter as you attend the cheese & wine tasting at this evening event.
Or perhaps you'd care to head a little inland, towards Millsboro. On the 19th, the Nanticoke Indian Museum will be hosting their Heritage Day. We're looking forward to the dance troupe performances with Urie Ridgeway of the Lenni Lenape and the Red Blanket Drummers and Singers, taking place at Noon and 2 p.m., as well as a flute performance of Matt Harmon of the Nanticoke at 1 p.m.
Coastal Delaware is truly amazing, and these events are just the frosting on the cake that is living here. If you are looking to make the move to Coastal Delaware, please feel free to contact Mann & Sons, Inc. REALTORS®, and Let Our Family Take Care Of Yours.
