Cool Things to Do Aug 23-25

Posted: Updated:

DELMARVA- From adventure to art there are plenty of cool things to do on Delmarva this weekend.

Jeep Week rolls on in Ocean City, with daily beach crawls, an obstacle course and the Jeep Jam in Pittsville too. 

"It's about the Jeeple People taking over Ocean City," says director Brad Hoffman. "You know they come to town, they enjoy what I call the ultimate jeep vacation."

Also in Ocean City is a newer event, Art X. Art X features film screenings, workshops, food and even a free concert Saturday evening. Ocean City Communications Director Jessica Waters says the event is for both avid artists and art lovers.

"A lot of people are used to our Winter Fest and our Sunfest and Springfest events but Art X is really a very creative event that is something different than what we are used to," Waters explains.

In Delaware, Milton is packed with events on Saturday, from Bargains on the Broadkill, the Great Duck Race, and the 20th Annual Broadkill River Canoe and Kayak Race.

"It's a really good picture of Milton," says Chamber of Commerce President Michael Clark. "It's a welcoming kind of an event." 

On Sunday, WRDE and Telemundo Delmarva are proud to present the inaugural Festival Copa Delmarva. Eight teams from the Milford Soccer League will compete in the all day tournament for the cup and a chance to be sponsored by Telemundo Delmarva and WRDE for the season. Copa will also include activities for children, music, and food at the DE Turf Complex in Frederica.

"Let's celebrate soccer," says event organizer Robert Wilkinson. "Let's localize it and have our own little cup and just bring families together--have some fun, have some music and all that."
