Spring Sleep Under the Stars at Rockwood Museum & Park Set for Saturday

Preregistration for the Spring Sleep Under the Stars event at Rockwood this weekend has already drawn 1,170 people ready to enjoy outdoor games, crafts, face painting, hayrides, camping and more at this family oriented event.

Same-day registration will also take place for anyone who would like to participate at this free event. Camper check in begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, and activities will begin to pick up at noon and into the evening. Bonfires begin at 5 o’clock and quiet time begins at 11 p.m.

New Castle County Executive Tom Gordon encourages everyone to come out to this free event at a gorgeous park, with fair weather in the forecast. Sleep Under the Stars, featured recently on NCCTV (, drew more than 700 people last year.

“This is going to be a fantastic event where people can camp out, take tours of the famous Rockwood Museum, see and hear how our New Castle County Police K-9 unit works, and enjoy the Mounted Patrol’s demonstration as well,” County Executive Gordon said.

“We have also worked hard to ensure this event at Rockwood Park, an oasis just outside the City of Wilmington, is open and accessible to city and suburban residents alike,” he added. “Every year, it is a safe and peaceful event that, above all else, creates wonderful memories for families and children.”
