The 2013 Bethany Beach Jazz Funeral will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 2 at the north end of the Bethany Beach Boardwalk.
At the Jazz Funeral, spectators can join in a funeral procession of mourners, along with the combined forces of three Dixieland Jazz bands that carry a casket with a mannequin representing Summer of 2013.
“This Labor Day weekend is our time to thank all those who have visited with us during the Summer of 2013 and encourage them to return again in 2014,” said the assistant chairperson, Carolyn Bacon. “The Jazz Funeral events are dedicated to both locals and visitors. It is meant to be a universal end-of-season celebration of thanks and the kick off to a vibrant fall season.”
The charity kick-off event will be held at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 30 at the Bethany Blues Restaurant, 18385 Coastal Highway, Lewes. All funds raised at this event will go towards Sussex County Habitat for Humanity.
