The Weekend's Delaware Delights: Fall Funness

The foilage may not have arrived yet, but you can still kick off October with a bang at a few of these great events!

University of Delaware's Coast Day - Sunday, October 5, 11a.m. to 5p.m. UD's Hugh R. Sharp Campus, Lewes, DE.
Never ever underestimate the power of your ocean! This family-oriented event had loads of fun on the itinerary. Start off by picking up your Treasure Hunt map for chances to win prizes and then learn learn and learn more about environmental science. Meet scientists, tour boats, see sharks and learn how these guys down in Lewes are working hard to preserve our coasts. But in all honesty, all you need to know to go is four words, Crab Cake Cook Off. Go to to plan your coast day activities and practice your crab walk too while you're at it.

Delaware Auto Show - All Weekend, Chase Center, Wilmington, DE, $7 for Adults, Free for Children Ages 10 & Under
The inaugural auto show was such a hit last year it's back! Over 200 cars will be under one roof in Wilmington this week-end along with a slew of famous characters like YouDee and Swoop the Philadelphia Eagle.

Governor's Annual Fall Festival - Saturday October 4, Dover, DE 10 a.m. to 4 p.m Free
The Biggs will be there and so should you! The weather is lookin' real fine for a nice day in downtown Dover, including includes a morning 5K run/walk, entertainment, children’s games, a moon bounce, pony rides, face-painting and over 40 craft booths for all to enjoy. Local entertainment will be on hand to keep the fun rolling all day. This program is in conjunction with First State Heritage Park's First Saturday Free program.
