Inaugural DQ Dash 5k for Fireworks
Sunday, April 29, 2018 - 9:00am
During the Summer of 2017 a public-private collaboration of business owners, Lewes citizens, and representatives of the City of Lewes decided to form an organization to bring official fireworks back to the city of Lewes. We believe that safe and legal fireworks along our beach is the perfect ending to the Lewes' Old Fashioned Fourth of July festivities, which include games on Second Street, a boat parade on the canal, and the Lewes Doo Dah Parade. Fireworks on the beach are a perfect way to end this family-friendly day. Go Fourth! was formed to bring this to fruition.
Go Fourth! is jointly managed by the Go Fourth! committee of volunteers, the Lewes Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Lewes. The Go Fourth! Fund donations are managed in cooperation with the committee by the Greater Lewes Foundation 501(c)3, and thus, donations are tax-deductible.
Local builder Russ Palmer is serving as the first Go Fourth! honorary chair, helping to raise the $45,000 needed for the 2018 event. Members of the fundraising committee include Terri Colegrove, Paul Evalds, and Rich Garrett. Please visit the Sponsorship page for more information or to make a donation.
