Traffic Help During Firefly Music Festival in Dover


The Firefly Music Festival is this coming weekend in Dover – at The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway. A reminder to drivers in the area – camping load-in will begin on Thursday – the music festival is Friday through Sunday and traffic around Dover will be heavy.
