CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Feb. 16, 2013, is a day the people of Cambridge have had circled on their calendars for quite a while.

"People have really taken this to heart they think that it is sort of whimsical and fun," said Cambridge Main Street Executive Director Mari Stanley. "It's out there and people are really talking about it."

The numerical date is 2.16.13, which is also Cambridge's zip code. On Saturday, downtown Cambridge will celebrate Zip Code Day, which is a once in a century event.

"This is really a unique event," Stanley said. "21613 won't occur again until the next century. So it isn't just a once in a lifetime event. It's a once in a century event."

A community photo will be taken at 2 p.m. at Spring Valley and special Cambridge-themed postcards will be sold commemorating the day with the date on the front and the Choptank River Lighthouse on the back.

"I designed a postcard that says Zip Code Day Cambridge, Md., and I put our new lighthouse on there and I thought it would be cool if people mailed it out and it had the zip code on it to their friends and relatives," said store owner Judy Harbuck.

Harbuck ordered over 100 postcards that will become an instant souvenir.

"Just take the postcard down to the post office and they will stamp it with tomorrow's date on it, which is what Zip Code Day is," said Harbuck.
