Deltaville Maritime Museum opens this weekend
by Bill Powell
President, Deltaville Maritime Museum
I know everyone is ready to get outside and have some fun now that pesky winter is over. The weatherman is calling for temperatures in the 60s and sunny for this weekend so it will be time to put on the short sleeves and get outside.
There is going to be plenty to do and see at the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park’s Working Waterman’s Weekend (WWW) on Friday and Saturday, April 24-25.
The new museum building has been transformed for the new maritime exhibits currently being installed and upgrades are being made to the park’s walkways, gardens and plantings. The first Holly Point Market (formerly the Deltaville Farmers’ Market) and the Groovin’ in the Park concert series kick off their seasons for 2015. This official season-opening weekend will be a great time to come out, take a look, and enjoy all the neat stuff!
If you are down for the RE Strong 5K and 10K runs on Saturday morning there’s plenty of time after the races to come down and enjoy WWW.
