Holiday Events on the Eastern Shore

Daylight Saving Time has ended and it’s getting dark at 4:30pm. So what can you do in the winter on the Eastern Shore to cheer you up? I’ve noticed lots of holiday events popping up in my Facebook feed. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could find a list in one place? I’ve complied a list of the small towns around Garden and Sea Inn and their events. Please keep in mind they can change dates/times and make cancellations at any time. Always check with the Chamber of Commerce for the town/event before making any plans as I can’t always keep up with everything going on.
