Last week’s late season storm not withstanding, it’s officially spring now in coastal Delaware. And that means life is about to get much more fun and interesting here at the Delaware beaches.

It also means that our “Weekender Blog” will be transforming back into a look ahead for happenings and events coming up over the next few days. Here at the Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty, we aim to keep you informed of what’s going on here in fabulous coastal Delaware – and this is how we do it.

This weekend features many different Easter Egg hunts for the kids, for example, and we will provide information below for as many of these as we can. But the first big festival of the year also takes place this weekend (Friday) in the form of the Great Delaware Kite Festival at Cape Henlopen State Park.

Take a look at one of the past kite festivals below...
