The staff of Delaware Seashore State Park closed out their 50th anniversary celebrations with a Celebration of the Inlet Sept. 23.

"The goal of the 50th anniversary event series was to highlight the major parts of the park that make up the heart and soul of Delaware Seashore," says Interpretive Programs Manager Laura Scharle. "We celebrated fishing at the spring surf fishing tournament, we celebrated the beach at the sandcastle contest, and we celebrated the bay at our paddlefest event. Now it's time to celebrate the Indian River Inlet."

The festivities began at 5 p.m. at the North Inlet Day Area where Chorduroy Band, a local Delaware favorite, performed. Food trucks from Rosenfelds Jewish Deli and Zogg's Sea Hogg served food for purchase. There was a beach bonfire and guided bridge hikes. To top it all off, the first 300 participants has the opportunity to make their own Delaware Seashore 50th anniversary tote bag.

Scharle says that families have been coming to Delaware Seashore State Park to camp on the beach long before the land even became a state park. To throw in some nostalgia, park staff are allowing visitors an exclusive opportunity to camp directly on the beach.
