SUSSEX COUNTY, Del.- Up and down Sussex County’s coast this weekend are tons of opportunities to have some summer fun.

On Saturday starting at 11 a.m. is the fourth annual Rehoboth Bach goes Red, White and Blue. The event pays tribute to our military and first responders with concerts, vintage military displays, and more.

“It’s just a wonderful day to say thank you to everybody for all that they do,” explains Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Carol Everhart. “Most of the businesses are offering a discount to our volunteers and military and those if they show their ID.”

Also happening Saturday is the first ever Milton Pride Festival. The event kicked off Thursday night with a film screening, but each day of the weekend includes special performances–like a tribute to Queen–dance parties, and community groups coming together to honor the LGBT community.

“It’s open to everyone,” says Marketing Director JP Lacap. “You know gay, straight, transgender, everyone is going to be welcome in the theatre.”

Everyone is also welcome to go to Fort Miles on Sunday, where there is a special book signing for the book “D-Day Girls” about women’s role in the famous invasion. Starting at 2 p.m., it’s the first public event at the newly renovated Battery 519.

“Sunday we have our first book signing at our new venue here at Fort Miles historic area overlooking the Atlantic Ocean,” says Dr. Gary Wray. “So we are all getting ready for it and it’s going to be an exciting day.”

“We are giving out cake with all the ice cream purchases,” says co-owner Chelsey Wharton. “Then we’ll have a bounce house, there will be a DJ and we are going to have some face painting and some different crafts and activities for the kids.”
