Back again, the pop-up beer garden benefitting the Selbyville Volunteer Fire Company, sponsored by Banks Wines & Spirits, will last from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, allowing festival attendees to enjoy a refreshing beverage as they take in the festivities of the day.  Salem United Methodist Church will host roller skating at their indoor rink ($1 skate rental)  and additional children’s activities including inflatables sponsored by the McDonalds of Selbyville will also be featured on Church Ave. Free fire truck rides, courtesy of the Selbyville Volunteer Fire Company, will also be offered from 11am-2pm.

“Locals, visitors, families, and car enthusiasts alike have spent the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend in downtown Selbyville, and we love having the opportunity to highlight the town,” says Chamber Executive Director Lauren Weaver. “Guests find the inland towns to be charming and family-friendly. The classic cars and trucks are a blast from the past.”
