Boast the Coast 24th Annual Event
The 24 th annual Boast the Coast event will take place on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Boast the Coast was conceived in 1996 to showcase Lewes’ nautical heritage and to feature activities that complemented the already long-established University of Delaware’s annual “Coast Day” event. Coast Day takes place on their Lewes campus on Pilottown Road the first Sunday in October with Boast the Coast always the day before. There are a number of free activities associated with Boast the Coast taking place in 1812 Park adjacent to the City Dock on the canal from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The children’s activities include free nautically-themed face painting and balloon art by Chuckles the Clown. Free deck tours of the R/V “FIRST STATE,” the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife’s 65’ research vessel, will take place at City Dock, also from 11a.m. – 2 p.m. There is a Seafood Tasting in the park during those hours with food priced individually.
