Halloween Happenings 2019!

By Savanna Shackleford, in All Communities

Halloween is just around the corner, and events are already starting to brew here in the Delmarva area. Ghosts, zombies, mummies, OH MY! One of the best perks about buying a Schell home is the proximity most of our communities have to Bethany Beach, Rehoboth Beach, Milton, Salisbury, and even Ocean City. Our communities are perfectly situated for you to enjoy Delmarva’s most exciting fall and Halloween events.

We wanted to make sure you know exactly what’s creeping in the coming weeks, so you can find the scare that fits you!
