“Piping Out the Summer
” originated in the 1950s with bandleader Sammy Ferro, whose orchestra played for dances at the old Henlopen Hotel.

to gather on the Boardwalk at 5:30 p.m., Sep 6, in front of the Henlopen Hotel. The ensemble will then proceed to “pipe out” down the Boardwalk to the Bandstand. The historical society is providing kazoos for people without their own instruments.
