4th of July Celebrations Planned Throughout the Coastal Region

June 27, 2018

Greetings and welcome to a special Independence Day version of the "Weekender Blog," brought to you every Wednesday by the real estate professionals at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby's International Realty.

If you follow our weekly blog, then you know that we generally preview events and happenings coming up during the next Friday to Sunday time period here in the coastal region.

But with July 4th falling on a Wednesday this year, today's blog entry is going to be a little different. While a couple of holiday happenings do, in fact, fall on the upcoming weekend, most are being held during the middle of next week.

So today, we're donning the red, white and blue and giving you everything you need to know for celebrating Independence Day 2018 here in the beautiful coastal regions of Delaware and Maryland.

Okay, let's get right to it. Here's what's being planned for the celebration of Independence Day at the Delaware and Maryland beaches.

Stars and Stripes Fireworks Celebration (June 30). Scheduled for Cupola Park in Millsboro, this second annual event kicks off the 2018 Independence Day celebrations in the coastal region. 

Food trucks, musical entertainment and other fun activities are planned beginning at 6 p.m., with the fireworks beginning at approximately 9 p.m. This is a free event, with a rain date scheduled for Sunday, July 1.

Rehoboth Beach Fireworks (July 1). This is always one of the most popular events of the summer in the "Nation's Summer Capital," are there are many ways to watch the show, both from land and from sea (see fireworks cruise entry below).

Rehoboth Fireworks Cruise (July 1). For a unique way to view the Rehoboth Beach fireworks this year, consider taking a cruise on the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.

There will be live entertainment on board, provided by the popular Glass Onion, and food and beverages will be available for purchase from the Lido Bar.

This event sold out during it's inaugural year in 2017, so check first to make sure tickets are still available before driving to the ferry terminal. Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for children under the age of 12.
