Destination? Lewes Canalfront Park, Historic Lewes, Delaware, Events, Cinema and Concerts by The Canal, Fitness, Yoga, Zumba, The 3rd Annual Picnic in The Park, At Canalfront Park, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware


It was my first time at the 3rd Annual Picnic in The Park at Canalfront Park, in Lewes, Delaware.  One of my usual suspects, Cindi, came with me.  My first thought was Small Town U.S.A.  To see everyone sitting around, chatting, smiling and enjoying one beautiful day by the water in the First Town of the First State.  This photo says it all.


Picnic in The Park was held on Sunday, June 1st, from Noon until 3 p.m. at Canalfront Park on Front Street in Lewes.  The admission, if purchased online, was $10, otherwise, $15 at the door.  Kids 12 and under were $5.  Food and beverage tickets were $2 each at the event.  I bought $20 for Cindi and I.



Lewes restaurants were under their tents offering visitors their best and most well known delicacies:  Agave, Buttery, Gilligan’s, Half Full, Irish Eyes, Jerry’s, Kindle, Nectar, Rose and Crown, Savannah Deli and Grille, Striper Bites, Touch of Italy, and 2 Dips. These restaurants gathered around the park and from beef tenderloin chili and fresh cornbread to lobster salad sandwiches….all you had to do is give them 1 or 2 tickets, depending on the food and let the tastings begin.

Plenty of tables to sit, eat, and listen to the music.






Dogfish Head

Dogfish Head

The kids were having a blast with games you never see anymore.



The Cow Milking Contest….that, I had not seen before, but was so funny.  It had a lot of interest.


Cindi and I loved the Cotton Candy.  It was just made…so light and airy and complimentary.  As a young child I had a cotton candy machine; a small version of the one at the park.  Colorful sugar made beautiful cotton candy.

I love the photo of the 2 Cotton Candy Girls….right by Lightship Overfalls, they were experts at the Cotton Candy machine….and so typical.
