There are so many things to see and do in Cecil County this spring!
Take a look at this weekend’s offerings and you will wonder how you will decide to select just one or two events to enjoy.
For a unique event, try the Maryland State Firemen’s Association’s 125th Anniversary party in Port Deposit. Where would we be without the thousands of volunteers through the years who willingly put themselves into harm’s way to protect their fellow citizens and to help save homes and property? Water Witch Fire Company in Port Deposit will do a great job with the celebration – a history talk, parade, fire equipment display and even fireworks!
You can watch the eagles at Elk Neck State Park and have a river boat cruise with NorthBay on Saturday.
Put on your running or good walking shoes and enjoy the unparalleled beauty at Mt. Harmon Plantation in Earleville as they hold their annual 5K Cross Country Run/Walk.
Speaking of Earth Day, the annual Riversweep will bring volunteers along the banks of the Susquehanna River and its tributaries to give the river a good spring cleaning.
That is just this weekend. The events in Cecil County continues into next week and beyond.
The first of the Downtown Elkton Classic Car Shows begins Thursday, April 27. A Poetry and Creative Writing Reading will happen at The Palette & The Page in downtown Elkton next Friday, April 28, and the art theme continues with a Wine & Dine for the Arts at The Wellwood, also on Friday, benefitting the Cecil County Arts Council.
Then on Saturday, April 29, there will be a tractor pull at the Cecil County Farm Museum.
The following weekend includes a tradition and a special anniversary. The St. Mary Anne’s Garden Market is May 5 and 6. It is the 20th anniversary of this great event that brings family and friends together in the pursuit of a prettier garden. What could be better?
The event list for First Friday in downtown Elkton continues to grow. The May 5th First Friday runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and includes the opening of Upper Bay Counseling & Support Services’ annual “Expressions of Healing” art exhibit.
The strange delight people appear to get when running through rainbows of color powder can be seen on May 6 when the Annual Color Vibe walk/run event happens in downtown Elkton benefitting Relay for Life. The real story is following these powder-covered people back to their vehicles to figure out how everybody gets back home without ruining their vehicle’s interior!
There is so much more to look forward to this spring like the Scottish Games and Fair Hill Races at Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area. Elkton will hold a Memorial Day Parade!
So, the next time somebody tries to whine “there’s nothing to do,” tell them there is plenty to do in Cecil County. Just get out there and do it!
