What’s Going On?, Activities, Events, Entertainment, Delaware Beaches
Not so quick to think we are hibernating at the Delaware Beaches. Usually the week following a holiday week-end is quiet at the Delaware Beaches; more so this time of the year. If you are visiting Lewes, Rehoboth, Milton, Clarksville (west of Bethany Beach), then check what’s going on…

Learn how to find the familiar star patterns known as constellations and learn the stories they tell as we go outside and explore the night skies. Ages 10 and older with an adult. $2/person.

Friday, 1/20 – Milton, DE – Documentary – An Evolving Legacy: Delaware’s Coastal Act. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Venue? The Milton Fire Hall located at 116 Front St., Milton, Delaware.

Delmarva Roots is a series of films about the rich history of the Delmarva region. If you missed it at the Film Festival then here is another chance.
Forty years ago, Governor Russell W. Peterson championed Delaware’s landmark Coastal Zone Act to preserve the Delaware shoreline. Before Peterson’s death last February at the age of 94, he was interviewed. He recounted the dramatic struggle to craft and pass this visionary legislation. In addition to reporting his story, the film explores the 40 year history of the Coastal Zone Act, and presents the ongoing challenges all Delawareans face in the struggle to balance the desire for industrial development with a love for unspoiled natural habitats. After the screening, Director Michael Oates will lead a question and answer session about the production of the film.
Friday, 1/20 – Lewes – The Lewes Historical Society Presents Jim Horn “Remembering Rehoboth Beach’s Glory Days” – at the Lewes Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, Kings Highway in Lewes. 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.

He will share his family’s collection of photos taken over time, recording much of the history of Rehoboth’s development and growth. His family’s enterprises in the early 1900’s included the Rehoboth dance pavilion, roller rink, stores, the Auditorium Theater in Lewes, the Del-Reho Casino and the Blue Hen Theater.
