Pedestrians – human and canine – step off the historic ferry at a previous Woodland Ferry Festival.

WOODLAND – If you’re a motorist looking to cross the Nanticoke River Saturday, take a rain check.

Pedestrian rides on the historic Woodland Ferry are the order of day tomorrow, Sept. 12 as the Woodland Ferry Festival takes center-stage along the riverbank village of Woodland, four miles east of Seaford.

A rain or shine event, the festival features a variety of craft/artisan vendors, food vendors, exhibitors/demonstrations, a silent auction and entertainment, including a duck train for children.

The “Days Gone By” museum will be open for tours, with free admission.

For early risers, there is a community breakfast at Woodland United Methodist Church (from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.).

The festival, sponsored by the Woodland Ferry Association, is held in salute to the historic ferry, which for more than two centuries has linked Woodland on the Seaford side of the Nanticoke with Bethel on the Laurel side of the river.
