What’s Happening- July 21, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Kids today live in a world that poses may different challenges and obstacles, some that older generations simply can’t relate. Due to the disconnect, some professionals and parents alike are seeing their children move inward, and internalizing their troubles rather than sharing them. By doing so, children may develop an array of behavioral problems such as depression, mood disorder, emotional distance and so on; however the professionals at Maple Shade Youth and Family Services have found a key to help unlock what may be troubling children and all you have to do is get them to play. Hear more about this revolutionary therapy today at five.
If your week is looking rather light, we have some events that are sure to pack your weekend with good old family fun. First we travel to Talbot County where the nationally recognized ‘Plein Air Competition and Arts Festival’ is happening this weekend! Artists and visitors from all over the country flock to Easton to get their eyes, and brushes, on the beautiful landscape of the area. The 13th Annual Plein Air Competition and Arts Festival runs throughout the weekend and wraps up on Monday.
If you’re looking to fill another opening in your weekend schedule, get yourself and the whole family up to Harrington for the 98th Delaware State Fair. From great food, to great music and an array of great ride- there’s something for everyone at the fair and the only thing it’s missing is you! Today we get a behind the scenes look at the fair (which opened it’s gates Thursday) and all the hard-work and planning it took to turn the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington, into an action-packed, fun-filled festival that you have to see to believe! Tune into DelmarvaLife at five to hear all the details on what to expect at this year’s fair.
We are also bringing you some of the cutest faces available for adoption right now on Delmarva. We have a fresh round of wet noses and fluffy tails in this week’s “Pet Connect”.
Finally- we had to celebrate this incredible week, and weekend, with some amazing music! Making their Mid-South Audio Stage debut, we welcome local indie/folk rock band, Penny Pistolero, to the stage. But before they blow us away with their incredible music, Jimmy and Lisa learn a bit more about the band that is already making quite the local name for themselves. Hear about them and listen to their awesome music, today at five.
Oh- and adding a cherry on top of a great show- we are also giving away two gifts as part of our Summer Guide Giveaway. Which two lucky viewers will walk away with prizes to kick off their weekend? We’ll tell you, today at five!
Have a great weekend everyone!
