.-1-- -- q -- Bargains on the Broadkill, Great Duck Race in Milton's future Modem times may find the his- toric town of Milton in the throes of change, but some things, thankfully, stay delightfully the same. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sat- urday, Aug. 23, the whole family can still discover great treasures, great food, and great fun at the an- nual Bargains on the Broadkill and the Great Duck Race in Mil- ton's Memorial Park. Local artisans and specialty craftsmen are a regular feature at the event and over 60 craft, an- tique, flea market and food ven- dor's are expected to set-up along the shores of the Broadldll River again this year. The Milton Lion Club's minia- ture train, Clipper Express, will be running throughout the day for the young kids, and no one is too old to indulge in the Lions' tradi- tional funnel cakes. Live music is also scheduled in the park to keep everyone entertained. At 1 p.m. the Great Duck Race returns in what is usually a hotly contested swim in the Broadkill River be- tween hundreds of "contestants." A $5 wager on a plastic duck is all it takes to be a part of the race, and the duck that crosses the fin- ish line f'wst wins the $500 grand prize. A two-night stay at the I Concert Continued from page 100 Seyfried, who grew up in a mu- sical household (Elise and Steve Seyfried, his mother and father, are founders of the Rehoboth Beach Summer Children's The- atre), said the concert's debut is a longtime dream. "Attending Curtis, I made a lot of contacts with other musicians," said Seyfried. "These are the first people I approached [for the con- Serenna Guest House in Milton will also be awarded as well as other great prizes offered by local businesses. The Milton Chamber of Commerce organizes Bargains on the Broadkill and the Great Duck Race, and all proceeds ben- efit the Chamber's membership, marketing and tourism programs. For more,information, vendor space, or to place a bet on a duck, call the Milton Chamber at 684- 1101. Competition on a more human level also takes place Saturday, Aug. 23, in Milton when premiere sponsor Discover Bank presents the fourth annual Broadldll River Canoe & Kayak Race. This year's paddling event is already gearing up to be bigger and better, and the competition even greater than in years past. Official sign- in and registration begins at 9 a.m. at the Oyster Rocks Road landing (east of Route 1 north- across from Eagles Crest Airstrip) outside of Lewes, and racing will commence by category beginning at 10:30 am. The 10-mile course follows along the scenic Broadldll River and winds deep into parts of the Edward McCabe Wildlife Refuge before paddlers cross the finish I cert]. They are all terrific, talent- ed and really close friends of mine." Seyfried took advantage of a small window of opportunity be- tween the end of the festival sea- son and the beginning of college to schedule the event. The con- cert is sponsored in part by the Cape Gazette and with the en- dorsement of Coastal.Concerts. For reservations or information about the concert, call Seyfried at 644-1759 or email leweschamber- line at the Memorial Park Harbor in Milton. Entry fees are $20 for a single canoe/kayak and $35 for a two- person canoe/kayak. Last year, nearly 60 boats raced and finish- ing times ranged from one hour and twenty-five minutes to three hours. Cash prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place fin- ishers in all categories with at least five entrants, and trophies will be awarded courtesy of Dr. and Mrs. James C. White of Mil- ton. All registered racers receive a 2003 Broadldll River Race T-shirt thanks to sponsors Federal Street Financial Services, Shipbuilders, Milton Family Practice and Short Funeral Services. Paddlers supply their own boats, although equip- ment rentals are available from Quest Fitness at 644-7020. If needed, transportation from the finish point in Milton back to Oyster Rocks Road landing will be provided. This popular event fosters a great sense of friendly competi- tion and family fun, while it fea- tures the great beauty and accessi- bility of the area's natural re- sources. All proceeds from the Broadkill River Canoe & Kayak Race bene- fit the Milton Theatre Project. For more information or to preregister for the race, call the Milton De- velopment Corporation at 684- 3400.
