Decorating Delmarva Holidayfest

Returning For its Fourth Holiday Season

A well-known item that every woman wants is a Coach purse. You do not have to pay high prices for a great purse when you go with this brand. There are so many great brands of Coach purses that will fit your lifestyle and personality. You can find all of the affordable styles that you love the most online or at a bargain outlet store.

In order to cover up the customers, Coach Outlet has also specific stores like for Handbags they have Coach Handbag Outlet store, where your female products like purses and handbags are available, at such specific stores you can buy Discount Coach Handbags. This type of specific store helps the customers to buy the favorite products very easily, without moving through mixed product stores.

If you've always purchased your Coach purses and handbags at the original Coach Outlet Online or even at the official Coach website, you will find that hunting for one at a Coach leather outlet can save you some money. If you are lucky, the bag you are eyeing could be had for only half the prices from the normal boutiques.

People prefer to shop for genuine Coach Outlet Sale at outlets, knowing very well the amazing discounts offered. They do not care about the modern trends, when they are fully aware that the Coach Factory Outlet can provide them with several interesting choices.

Of course, there is never a question of authenticity with the Coach Factory Outlet stores. But what about the online stores? With the big power sellers offering primarily if not all Coach products, this really shouldn't be much of a concern. They are making money already and wouldn't jeopardize their account on any shady dealings. But yes, caution must be used. Information on real and fake bags is readily available and worth reading over if you are new to online shopping for Coach Diaper Bags.

Create 1 Dream logo PROOF smaltWhen you think of fall and winter, what comes to mind? Falling leaves, cool crisp night air, and the holiday season? We tend to draw closer to family and friends during this time of year. We look forward to the holiday dinners, activities and decorations. All the while wishing we had more time to devote to each.

Three years ago, Mark and Denise Cathell made a commitment to families and communities across the peninsula to offer an event that would encompass all of this in one place. Decorating Delmarva HolidayFest opened in November, 2012. This unique concept offered an atmosphere of so many things such as family fun, activities, food and even holiday displays and lights. This event had a different twist from other "festivals" held around the area. It was geared more towards supporting the communities such as local schools, non-profits and charitable organizations. Contests and proceeds were divided up and given back in various ways to help support these worthy groups and causes.

Three Big Weekends

This year we will be open for three big weekends. We will open on Friday night December 4th. The event will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting December 4, running through December 20. The hours of operation will be from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm, Friday and Saturday evenings. Sunday’s schedule will run from 5:30 to 8 pm.
Each weekend will highlight a specific venue. The first weekend we planned to have several vendors set for a “Holiday Fair”, to offer our customers unique holiday gift ideas. The next weekend we will team up with Operation We Care, for our first Festival of Trees Auction. Operation We Care would like to ask local businesses to donate a decorated tree to benefit their organization. The final week will be all about the children and our “Santa Send Off Party.” Back by popular demand, Santa will be bringing two of his “Live” Reindeer. Comet & Cupid will make their first appearance on the eastern shore, Sunday December 20!


Giving Back

In their three years of operation, Decorating Delmarva has donated back over $80,000 to the above mentioned groups, (actual total of $80,103.00). With an event of this magnitude, there is a huge cost in developing such a venue. When dust settled, or should we say the snow melted, this event was a huge success in many ways. Mark Cathell, President of the Create 1 Dream Foundation, who headed up this project stated, “We have been happy with the past three year’s accomplishments. We knew going into the event that it would take time to show folks our vision. This event we feel in our hearts, many communities and families around the area needed. This event had a motto from the beginning, “to bring unity back to our communities.” 

This event is all about festivities, fun and more, the light are just a bonus! This year will once again feature our popular fire pits, food and craft vendors, nightly entertainment, money grab box and inside games for the children to enjoy.

Our committee has been working hard over the last 6 months to make this year bigger and better. We learned a lot in our first couple of years, making changes to enhance this wonderful and enlightening event for kids of all ages.



Admission this year will be only $7.00 a car load, Friday, Saturday & Sunday evenings. This makes Decorating Delmarva HolidayFest, affordable fun for the entire family. Come out and make some wonderful holiday memories with us! From our family to yours, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
