Beachgoers Enjoy Rehoboth this Memorial Weekend

Posted:
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - Just by looking at the traffic on Route 1, it's obvious Memorial Weekend has officially hit Rehoboth Beach.
As the start of the summer season, Memorial Day marks the beginning of very busy beach days. Local businesses feel the love.

Dale Cirillo has worked at the arcade on the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk for 25 years, and loves when the holiday weekend finally arrives.

"It's gonna be wonderful!" she exclaimed. "We do very well, we really keep up with the pace, we'll make everybody happy, we cover all our bases here."

Even on Friday afternoon the beach and boardwalk is already crowded. Many people are from out of town. Like the Priestly's, who are visiting from Townsend, for a romantic getaway.

"That's right, we're away from the kids this weekend," Lacey Priestly said. "They're with grandma, so we're here to have a good time."

Jill Keane came with her husband and two babies from Washington, D.C. for their first beach vacation as a foursome.

"We have played on the boardwalk, we've blown bubbles, we've done the arcade and beaching it, ice cream and a little surrey ride," she said.

For Cirillo, the more visitors, the better.

"We get people from all over the world," she said. "It's great!"

With the warm weather, many people said they are excited to kick off the summer, after a very long winter.
