Holiday Events to Get You in the Mood the Weekend Before Christmas

December 15, 2021

We have a few more holiday events to tell you about this week as we celebrate our last weekend before Christmas 2021 is officially upon us!

As you can probably guess, our events calendar for the next few days is filled with all sorts of merry events and happenings. So pick a few that tickle your fancy and head out for some pre-holiday fun at and near the Delaware and Maryland beaches.

From Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, north to Wilmington and eastern Pennsylvania and even a fun Christmas-time event in Maryland's capital city of Annapolis, we have a little something for everyone this week in our latest "Weekender Blog."

We'll be back again next week to feature a few things happening over Christmas weekend. But in case you miss us, our best wishes for the merriest of holiday seasons to you and your family.

Have a great weekend everyone!
