There is also going to be plenty of excellent food options available with attendees getting the chance to eat crab cakes, Italian ice, and other local cuisine. And of course, there will be lots of outdoor shopping available for those who want to pick up a great deal and take something home with them. Some of the other featured events include an 8K and 5K run, a grand parade, a fireworks extravaganza, a volleyball tournament, and a youth art show!
