No need to adjust your calendars or double-check the date on your cell phones. We know it's not Thursday, when you're used to seeing our information filled blog regarding upcoming events and happenings in and around coastal Delaware.
But this week, there's a very special happening occurring mid-week that we thought you'd be interested in hearing about, and possibly attending. So we're writing this special mid-week edition of the Oldfather Group's "Weekender Blog."
Be sure to check out this unique event coming up tomorrow just a few miles from the beach. And if you do stop by, be sure to let us know what you thought of it.
Now fasten your seat belts, make sure your Flux Capacitor is functioning within normal parameters and let's go – BACK TO THE FUTURE!!
If you're between 40 and 60 years old, you no doubt remember the "Back to the Future" trilogy of movies, a three-peat of fan favorite films that became some of the most iconic of the 1980s and early 1990s.
But do you remember the date Marty McFly and Doc Brown travelled to when visiting the future in 1989's Back to the Future II? Well, in case you forgot, that date was Oct. 21, 2015.
Great Scott, that's tomorrow!! (I realize only those of you in the aforementioned age range will probably get that reference, as well as the Flux Capacitor mention above)
And to celebrate the occasion, Marty, Doc and a replica of the film's classic Delorean automobile will be making an appearance in Sussex County tomorrow.
Working collaboratively with Southern Delaware Tourism, the town of Georgetown and 16 Mile Brewery, the Greater Georgetown Chamber of Commerce is tomorrow transforming the Sussex County Seat into the fictional Hill Valley of "Back to the Future" fame. By order of the mayor and town council, the town will officially take that name for the day in celebration of the film.
Officials are also bringing in a classic Delorean to re-enact the climaxing scene of the first "Back to the Future" film, when lighting strikes Hill Valley's clock tower (or in this case, the Sussex County Courthouse) and transforms the mischievous Marty (or Calvin Klein if you prefer) back to 1985.
The re-enactment will begin at 4:30 with the always-entertaining Sky Brady playing the part of Doc Brown. A screening of the film will take place behind the old courthouse immediately following, with refreshments and a special beer produced just for the occasion by Georgetown's 16 Mile Brewery.
By all accounts, this should be a great, family-friendly event for all age groups. For more information on this one-time-only fun happening, contact the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce today at 302-856-1544.
