Can someone please explain to us how July is almost over… where did the time go? We are shocked that it’s almost August. But on the other hand, we are excited for this last weekend of July; as it’s filled with fun outdoorsy things to do with the family. Ring in the month of August the right way, with some of these fun events that the Eastern Shore is proud to host… of course you can always just relax on the beach, that’s always our go-to!
Peach Festival in Milton DE
Head to the quaint town of Milton, DE and enjoy their annual Peach Festival from 3-6 PM on Friday, July 25th. The Milton Farmer’s Market hosts the event and this year expect to see a little “party” added into the mix. They will sell cups of Dogfish Head’s trademark peach beer, Festina Peche, from kegs at the Dogfish Head tent. All the other sellers (there are over 20 of them!) incorporate and celebrate anything and everything peach into their offerings, from fresh regular peaches to peach ice cream to peach BBQ to peach jam. There will be live music as well so make sure to head on down to enjoy the flavor of the summer.
Big Fish Classic
Head to the docks that started it all in downtown OC, as fisherman battle it out in the Big Fish Classic. This tournament follows the tradition to bring the biggest fish back to the dock and weigh them in for the public to see. This tournament starts on Friday July 25th and goes until Sunday July 28th. The boats are allowed to fish any port from New Jersey to Virginia as long as they come back to Talbot Street Pier to weight their catch.
