Here are a few nifty events outside of Dover that you should consider checking out this weekend.
Amazing juggling show
WHAT Cascading Carlos in concert
WHEN 10 a.m., Saturday
WHERE Freeman Stage at Bayside, 31750 Lake View Drive, Selbyville
INFO Visit freemanstage.org or call (302) 436-3015
You shouldn’t call Cascading Carlos a magician or a clown, because he’s a juggler.
However, he does clown around and has a lot of illusions in his juggling show. Not to mention, he also juggles fiery sticks.
You and the kids can see Cascading Carlos in Selbyville on the Freeman Stage at Bayside on Saturday morning. While this outdoor concert will certainly be cool, what’s cooler is that the show will be free. As a head's up, remember to bring your own lawn chair(s) to better enjoy this show.
In addition to entertaining audiences, Cascading Carlos’ performances also are intended to build self-esteem and give people the confidence that they can live out their dreams.
Tropical sound in Rehoboth
WHEN 10 p.m., Saturday
WHERE Dogfish Head, 320 Rehoboth Ave, Rehoboth Beach
INFO Visit dogfish.com or call 226-BREW
The Bullbuckers were born from a stir-fry of reggae, ska and soul.
Influenced by the roots of American and Caribbean music, the Bullbuckers have created a bold and gritty sound that’s as delightful to the ear as honey is to the tongue.
The Bullbuckers will serve up their home-cooked sound at the Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach on Saturday night.
In America, a Bullbucker is a traditional name for head man in charge of tree fallers in a lumber camp. In Jamaica, however, it’s used as a term to describe someone who has no fear or assumes power over another. The guys in the band certainly relate more to the Jamaican definition.
Pirate adventure in Wilmington
WHAT Kalmar Nyckel tour
WHEN 9:30 to 11 a.m., Saturday
WHERE Dravo Plaza, 815 Justison St., Wilmington
COST $35 for adults and $20 for ages 17 or younger
INFO Visit kalmarnyckel.org or call 429-7447
You and your family can feel like real-life pirates while traveling aboard the mighty Kalmar Nyckel ship across the Christina River on Saturday morning.
The Kalmar is a faithful recreation of the original ship that brought the earliest settlers from Sweden to Delaware.
Based in Wilmington, the ship is known for hosting King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden, as well as the speaker of the parliament of Finland, Eero Heinäluoma, for a historic sail on the Christina River.
