Cool Things to do for the Weekend of July 5

Posted: Jul 05, 2019 3:09 PM -04:00 Updated:
The extended Independence Day holiday weekend provides several fun things to do after the fireworks shows. On Saturday July 6 Lewes will be the site of the 10th annual Kelly J. Fritchman Memorial 5K. Fritchman was born with cystic fibrosis and was able to swim competitively including for the University of Delaware.
 
Fritchman lost her battle to the disease at age 32. Funds from the race go a scholarship in her name for the Blue Hens Swim Team.
 
"When it came to having a college she could go to, it had to have a swim team," Frithcman's mother and race organizer Laurie Leary said. "She found UD and that was the greatest thing for her."
 
To date, the scholarship is valued at $150,000. The registration fee is $30. The race starts at 7:30 a.m. A post-race party follows featuring a bloody mary bar.
 
Kayakers can check out some shorebirds in their natural habitat with the Exploring Station Cove Tour. It takes place Saturday and Sunday at 9:30 a.m. at the Delaware Seashore State Park.
 
"The main thing you see out there are laughing gulls," Seashore State Park Program Manager Laura Schale explained. "The colony nesting in Rehoboth Bay is the only colony in the state of Delaware."
 
Participants are asked to wear closed toed shoes. The state park provides the kayaks. $35 is the cost for the 2.5 mile water tour of the Rehoboth Bay.
 
Bicyclist at Cape Henlopen State Park can ride through history with the Cold War Bike Tour. Featured are relics found in the park and tales of Soviet Union submarine tracking. The cost is $5 and the tour begins Saturday July 6 at 10:30 a.m.
