Return Day 2018

November 8, 2018 in Georgetown

Return Day takes place on November 08, 2018. Return Day is a biennial unique festival and ceremony held the Thursday after Election Day in Georgetown, Delaware, during which election results are announced. While television and the Internet has obviously eliminated the need for Return Day, tradition has kept the festival alive. Schools and government offices shut down for the afternoon of the Thursday after Election Day, and people from throughout the state flock to Georgetown for the festivals. The day still has a carnival atmosphere, complete with merchants, food vendors, and competitions, such as a hatchet-tossing contest, pitting the mayor of Georgetown against the mayors of other Sussex County towns. Return Day is used by many politicians as a way to announce or create buzz for their upcoming campaign. Politicians often hand out campaign stickers for the office they will seek in two years. Other people wear stickers exhibiting wishful thinking or encouraging their favorite candidate to seek higher office. (With material from: Wikipedia)
