It’s opening weekend at Funland in Rehoboth Beach and, who knows, maybe they’ll have a presidential visitor.
According to the Week Ahead Guidance and press schedule from the White House issued May 7, President Joe Biden is expected to be at his North Shores home beginning Saturday, May 13.
In advance of the visit, the Federal Aviation Administration issued a restricted flight area notice May 11 that goes into effect beginning noon, Saturday, May 13, and ends 10 a.m., Monday, May 15.
Here’s a list of security measures taken when Biden is in town:
- Gordons Pond users should expect restrictions. The park’s parking lot is just around the corner from Biden’s home and is used as a landing site for Marine Force One
- The FAA’s temporary flight restrictions limit use of the airspace from Dover south to Ocean City, Md.; and west to the Maryland border
- The Coast Guard establishes security zones in the ocean area immediately in front of North Shores beach and in the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal.
Since Biden was elected president, he has attended church, walked on the beach and gone for a few bike rides while in Rehoboth Beach. If he does so on this trip, send photos to reporter Chris Flood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
