Happy Birthday, Delaware!

Tis the weekend for Separation Day  in Old New Castle, Delaware!

 

 

 

June 15th commemorates the day that the Assembly of the Lower Counties of Pennsylvania, the three counties that now comprise our fair state, declared their independence back in 1776 from England and King George III. They also parted ways with the family of William Penn and declared themselves to be their own state of Delaware.

 

Each year, to celebrate our birthday, Delawareans and visitors, gather in historic New Castle on the second Saturday in June. Historic New Castle is a wonderful place to explore the architectural details and learn the stories that led to our Separation Resolution. This isn’t why we’re the First State; that came later on December 7, 1787,when we were the first state to ratify the US Constitution. December 7th is therefore, fittingly, Delaware Day.

 

There will be food, vendors, music and on Saturday night, my favorite… fireworks over the Delaware River. Come celebrate our Birthday this weekend in Old New Castle!

Old New Castle is a real treasure in terms of history. Interesting things to learn that paint a marvelous picture of life back in the day.

Much as I tried to set my schedule so that I could get over there, it just didn't allow time for it this year... so, I'll have to take your word about the BBQ samples!
