What’s Happening Today – July 26, 2016
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Executive Director of The Freeman Stage at Bayside, Patty Grimes, stops by to tell us about the mission behind the outdoor performing arts venue in Selbyville, and some upcoming shows. The Freeman Stage is a program of the Josh M. Freeman Foundation. Patty tells us it’s all about providing cultural experiences to the public, something Josh Freeman, the former chair of the Carl M. Freeman Foundation, held very close to his heart. After Freeman’s untimely death in December 2006, the Josh M. Freeman Foundation was created in his honor. Now, more than 50-thousand people visit the venue annually, to see acts such as Grace Potter, The Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma, A Comedy of Errors, Gladys Knight and many more.
WBOC Multimedia Journalist, Lauren Holloway, stops by the studio to tell us how we can watch the 91st Annual Chincoteague Pony Swim live tomorrow morning. Thanks to team coverage, you can have the best seat on Delmarva. Lauren and the team will stream coverage on Facebook Live from Chopper 16, on the dock, in the water, and in our studio. The Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company says the swim will take place between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Tune in on Facebook Live, or on WBOC Classics.
