Some fun events to dive into Delaware this weekend.
1. Country rocker Brantley Gilbert last played the Delaware State Fair in 2017. Now he’s back to bring more noise for the BG Nation this weekend.
As a heads up, you’ll have to pay for concert tickets in addition to the cost of fair admission.
Gilbert, a multi-platinum selling artist, dropped his latest album in 2017, “The Devil Don’t Sleep.” His upcoming album is “Man That Hung the Moon” and he recently dropped the title track from the album.
Some of his hits include “One Hell of an Amen” and “The Weekend.”

2. “The Merry Wives of Windsor” is Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy of trickery.
