With sunny skies and temperatures reaching 70 degrees April 12, the weather couldn't have been better for Dewey Beach's first big day of events for the 2014 season.

Beginning with the Dewey Business Partnership's Treasure Fest Community Yard Sale in the morning, ending with Gary's Dewey Beach Grill Brew Fest in the evening, and having the Rusty Rudder Chili Cook-Off sandwiched in between, the small beach town was full of activity all day.
