    Fifer Orchards’ 2014 Peach Ice Cream Day on Saturday promises to be a sweet event, for more reasons than one.
    Fifer’s peach ice cream will be joined by other tasty offerings, many of which are made with peaches. That includes peach barbeque chicken and pork tacos with peach salsa from Abbott’s Grill, peaches and cream cupcakes from the Frankfurt Bakery & Deli, and crab cake sandwiches with peach jam by Nage Restaurant.
    What also makes Peach Ice Cream Day a tasty event is its sweet entertainment. There will be hayrides, pony rides, train rides, a petting zoo, face painting, a rock-climbing wall and bungee jump.
    Providing the Americana soundtrack for the event will be Free Range (10 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and John Sell (1:45 to 3:15 p.m.).
    With so much fun to be had at Ice Cream Day, it’s impossible to not leaving feeling peachy.

    Just a year after Delaware became the 11th state to legalize same-sex marriage, the celebration of the LGBT community will continue during the 2014 Delaware Pride Festival at Legislative Hall on Saturday.
    The festival’s entertainment will include performances by Formal Dress Option (a group that performs scenes from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”), the Manhattan Prairie Dogs dance team and The Rainbow Chorale of Delaware.
    Having previously been held in Sussex and New Castle counties, this year’s Pride Festival will make its debut in Kent County. The event will be held at Legislative Hall where Gov. Jack Markell signed House Bill 75 in 2013, allowing same-sex marriage to be recognized in Delaware, which is a historic achievement for the First State.

    The festival offers a parade, and it will feature food and craft vendors, as well a peach dessert contest. There also will be a children’s area where kids can cut loose and share their love of this popular fruit together.
