Labor Day Weekend rings in the endless summer

With Labor Day fast approaching, another sunny, fun-filled summer is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean the best resort on the planet is throwing in the ol’ beach towel. While some people have bittersweet feelings towards September, others embrace it with all the love and affection it so deserves. The crowds are smaller, the weather is comfy, and the parking is free.

Water babies and die-hard beach-goers can still swim, skim, float, and play safely as the beaches remain guarded through mid-month. Restaurants and shops are open for business. The Jolly Trolley continues to run on the weekends. Parks, trails, and water sports are accessible for outdoor enthusiasts, and most amusement facilities remain open on weekends. So don’t get weepy as the summer season transitions into marvelous September and the start of autumn. It’s always an endless summer here in Rehoboth Beach.

For those in town for the holiday weekend, activities taking place include Sundance: The Super Magic Rainbow Glitter Ball benefitting CAMP Rehoboth. The event will be held Saturday and Sunday at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. Free concerts will be held every night at The Rehoboth Bandstand. Runners can participate in the 3rd Annual Summer’s End 5K in Dewey Beach on Sunday. This weekend marks the final days to set sail on the Kalmar Nyckel, Delaware’s Tall Ship, which offers tours out of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal through Monday.
