Here are some fun events to dive into this weekend.
1. A good time will be brewing for all ages at the family-friendly R2Hop2 Beer and Music Festival. And bear in mind, this will likely sell out, so you’ll want to buy tickets immediately.

More than 10 beers will be on draft with samplings from Harvest Ridge Winery and Painted Stave Distilling. Firkin tapping will also be available. The purchase of a VIP ticket will get you a t-shirt, R2hop2 glass, your own chill spot, a bottomless mug and a food ticket. A general admission ticket will get you an R2Hop2 glass and four beer tickets. A designated-driver ticket will get you unlimited Dominion soda.
Other festival highlights will include a photo booth, kids’ zone, face painting, keg tossing, multiple food options and dozens of local artisans to purchase wares from.
R2Hop2 will be held at 1284 MCD Dr., in Dover from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday. COST $50 VIP, $25 general, $20 designated driver. INFO Visit fordhamanddominion.com or call 678-4810.

After making its debut in Milford last year, the dance company will have an encore for this show. Diamond Dance transforms the enduring 1837 fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson into an enchanting, original ballet production that offers an adaption from Disney’s film, “The Little Mermaid.”
The adventure begins at Milford High School, 1019 N. Walnut St., in Milford from 2 to 5 p.m. and again from 7 to 10 p.m., all on Saturday. COST $20 premium and $10 general. INFO Visit southerndelawareballet.com
3. Theresa Caputo of TLC’s hit reality show “Long Island Medium” will bring her psychic abilities to the First State.
Caputo said she began seeing spirits at age 4. She suffered from anxiety for years until her mom suggested she visit a spiritual healer/teacher, where she said she learned to communicate with spirits.
Caputo has been a practicing medium for more than a decade and is a certified medium with the Forever-Family Foundation – an organization dedicated to connecting science with the afterlife.
The reality star will appear at the University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. COST $74 to $207. INFO Visit theresacaputo.com.
