Events This Weekend in Delaware and Maryland
It hasn't exactly felt like the hottest month of the year over the last few days, but the calendar does, in fact, show we still have a few weeks left in the Summer of 2022.
And that means a host of outdoor festivals and events still dominate the weekend calendars, many of which we're going to preview for you right now in our weekly "Weekender Blog."
This week's events are spread throughout the region, with headlining happenings taking place in Milford, Ocean City, Lewes, Middletown and more.
Have a great weekend everyone!
