Separation Day

Our great state of Delaware didn’t exist before June 1776. I know! Why do we learn it as one of the 13 colonies if we weren’t technically a colony by ourselves? Oh well, that’s how history changes through the generations.

Well, to celebrate Delaware’s separation from Britain, Pennsylvania, and the Penn family, Delaware holds their annual Separation Day. Makes sense right?

Tomorrow (Saturday, June 9) is this years celebration of Separation Day starting at 11am with a parade. There are bands, arts and crafts, amusement rides, and the evening is topped off with fireworks.

The last time we went to Separation Day, I saw the best fireworks I have ever seen.

Check the link for more information but it’s in Old New Castle/Battery Park from 11am until dark for the fireworks. Have fun!
