What’s Happening Memorial Day Weekend

We’d like to take a moment to remember the men and women who gave their lives serving in the United States of America’s armed forces.

This weekend is a time of reflection, time with family and also the unofficial kick-off to summer. Besides searching for seashells, digging your toes in the sand, strolling the boardwalk, shopping in unique beach boutiques and enjoying sweets at Kilwin’s, you might be wondering what’s happening Memorial Day Weekend at the beach.

Here’s some activities that caught our eye in and around Rehoboth Beach, Delaware:

Rehoboth Beach Museum

The museum welcomes your visit. Their exhibits show the history of having fun at the beach. Vintage bathing suits, post cards, photos and maps are on display. They have changing exhibits, too. Sand pails, surf boards and archaeological artifacts have all been on display. Little hands are welcome and the museum is handicap accessible. Admission is by donation, so it’s affordable, too. And if you’re looking for a great memento of your trip to Rehoboth Beach, their gift shop has lots of options. Whether you are a local, a longtime visitor, or on your first vacation to beautiful Rehoboth Beach, the museum is a wonderful place to be.

Rehoboth Beach Film Festival presents “The White Crow”

Friday, May 24 @ 4 PM and 7 PM on Saturday, May 25 , and Sunday, May 26 at 3PM,
Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa).

The evocative drama “The White Crow,” is about Rudolf Nureyev, the rebellious Russian ballet genius. It was directed by Academy Award®-nominee Ralph Fiennes, with the young Ukrainian dancer Oleg Ivenko in a star-making turn as Nureyev.

A young man of just 22, dressed in a black beret and a dark suit, is flying from St. Petersburg to Paris. It is 1961 and Rudolf Nureyev, not yet the imperious figure of legend, is a member of the world-renowned Kirov Ballet Company, travelling for the first time outside the Soviet Union. Parisian life delights Nureyev and the young dancer is eager to consume all the culture, art and music the dazzling city has to offer. But the KGB officers who watch his every move become increasingly suspicious of his behavior. When they finally confront Nureyev with a shocking demand, he is forced to make a heart-breaking decision, one that may change the course of his life forever and put his family and friends in terrible danger.

Admission is $8 for members and $11 for future members. For more information visit www.rehobothfilm.com or call 302-645-9095.

Macmillan Publishers
Drue Campbell’s life and career have recently been derailed. The only thing she has left is the house her mother left her: a ramshackle beach bungalow with a missing roof in the once-sleepy town of Sunset Beach, which is rapidly becoming a hot spot for the rich and well-heeled, who are none too pleased about the shabby eyesore in their perfect neighborhood.

Tickets are $55 and include an autographed copy of Sunset Beach, lunch + non-alcoholic beverage & gratuity, and a Browseabout Books canvas tote bag. Mary Kay will speak about her new book, answer questions, personalize books & take photographs with attendees.

Jamie McLean had a big decision to make in 2006. He could continue to tour the globe as the guitarist for New Orleans’ famed Dirty Dozen Brass Band playing sets at Madison Square Garden, Bonnaroo, Japan’s Fuji Rock and working with the likes of Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews and Norah Jones. Or he could do it his way, take the road less traveled and begin to lead Jamie McLean Band. It seemed as though there was only one option.
