All hail the dawn of the 2019 shoulder season

It rolled in last weekend, riding on the shoulders of Operation SEAs the Day, the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce’s Bethany Beach Boardalk Arts Festival and the Nanticoke Indian Tribe’s 42nd Annual Powwow. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the shoulder season is upon us, and it is indeed a magical time.

This weekend sees no shortage of activities for people to enjoy, as well.
