The Lewes Historical Society is celebrating the 53rd Anniversary of its Outdoor Antiques Show on August 6, 2016, at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal, 43 Cape Henlopen Drive in Lewes, Delaware. The show begins at 9:00am and lasts until 4:00pm, general admission is $5.00, and children under 12 are free. The proceeds benefit the Society and are used in educational and preservation programming.
Nearly 60 high quality antiques dealers participate in the show, featuring 18th century to early 20th century antiques. All pieces are authentic and represent a wide range of prices. There is something for every taste and every level of collecting sophistication at the show. "No two antique shows are alike. Our vendors bring their best antiques, so you can take home a real treasure,” says Antiques Show Committee Chairperson Cindy Foster.
Enjoy delicious food and cool treats. Fun for all, a kids' corner will provide entertaining activities. Dave Zipse will preform with his keyboard from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
"This Antiques Show is a Lewes institution. Many families plan their vacation time at the beach around this event. The antique dealers and visitors comment that they enjoy the traditional feel of the event as well as the ambiance of an outdoor show in such a beautiful setting," Lewes Historical Society Executive Director Michael DiPaolo said.
