On the festival grounds there will be arts and crafts exhibits, demonstrations, live music, children's activities and an assortment of Eastern Shore seafood and other fare. Helicopter rides will also be available.

Admission is $2. Deal Island is 30 miles south of Salisbury on Route 363. Call (800) 521-9189.
