Officials and residents gathered recently in Lewes to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Cape May Lewes Ferry. The day included a classic car show, entertainment, games and an outdoor screening of the WHYY documentary “Billion Mile Journey.”

DRBA officials unveiled memorial pavers and buried a time capsule near the front door of the Lewes terminal and the day ended with fireworks shot off from the Cape Henlopen State Park fishing pier. The park – which is also celebrating its 50th anniversary this year – and DRBA collaborated on the fireworks show.

During the event, Gov. Jack Markell touted the importance of the ferry, calling it “the best boat ride in America.”
