Returning this fall to Delmarva is “Decorating Delmarva HolidayFest”. This 2nd Annual 16-night event will take visitors on approximately a 2 mile tour through the North Pole, holiday lights, and community built displays and will conclude in Santa’s Village. In Santa’s Village there will be nightly festival events held in an activity area for children including, Santa Claus, holiday music, fire pits and nightly entertainment. The Delaware International Speedway and U.S. 13 Dragway properties located in Delmar, Delaware with its 120 acre Motorsports Complex will be the location of this one of a kind event which should shortly become a new Eastern Shore Tradition and destination spot for Delmarva! The event will be hosted by the Create 1 Dream Foundation, a 501c-3 Non-Profit organization located in Seaford, DE and founders Mark and Denise Cathell.
For 2013, Decorating Delmarva has joined the national campaign to increase the amount children read. Our hopes with this program will be to encourage children to read and offer an incentive to reach a goal of completion. Teaching our children at a young age to set goals in life and to complete those goals can play a significant role for them as they grow and become adults.
The Twelve Days of Reading requirements are very simple. Parents will need to take 20 minutes a night to read with their children over a period of twelve days. This program will begin November 1, 2013 and end November 29, 2013. We will supply a reading log for the schools to duplicate and pass out to the students for them to complete their goal for reading. Parents only need to sign off on the log showing the student read for the free admission.
New addition to Decorating Delmarva 2013, “FAMILY FUNFEST”. Each Saturday during the event, Decorating Delmarva will open their gates during the day. Gates will open at 12 noon, with various games and activities for the entire family! These events will include games, contests and activities for children of all ages!
