1- December - Delray Beach Historical Sociaety Presents: Fish Tales - 6:30pm. $5. Thus - Sat, 11am - 3pm. An exploration of area fishing! The close proximity of the ocean has always been a strong part of the identity of Delray Beach. For over 100 years, fishing has been both a popular pastime, and in the early days an essential activity for food and income. For decades, our Village by the Sea has lured people from all over the world in large part because of our beautiful ocean and coastline. Swimming, shelling collecting, sun bathing and fishing have helped Delray Beach maintain its quaint charm! 561-274-9578, delraybeachhistory.org
