Bruce In The USA is much more than just another tribute. This high-energy musical experience is a note-perfect and visually accurate recreation of a Bruce Springsteen & The E St. Band show. Matt Ryan began playing the Springsteen character in 2000 in the “Legends In Concert” Las Vegas show. The band consists of seasoned professional musicians — from acts or bands such as Queen, Meatloaf, Hall and Oates, The Temptations and Slash — which has taken this genre of performances to a whole new level. The show assaulted the senses in a fun-filled and exciting party atmosphere on the Vegas Strip, while suspending disbelief for even the toughest skeptics. They’ve been met with critical acclaim, from the Stone Pony, large theaters, and Performance Art Centers across the country, as well as corporate events spanning across the globe for over a decade. Sell out crowds are on their feet from the first song to the last. Bring Your Own Chair. Children age 12 & under are granted free entry to The Freeman Stage for all General Admission performances and must be accompanied by an adult.

The Market is open every Saturday from 8 am to noon. The Park is located at George H.P. Smith Park, at the corner of Dupont and Johnson Avenues and the best parking for the new location can be found at the Shields Elementary School and Lewes School Parking lots, just off the corner of Savannah Road and a short walk to the Market. In case of inclement weather, the Market is sometimes relocated to the Shields Elementary School Parking Lot. This year, the Market continues its SNAP (EBT Food Stamps) program. To help lower economic barriers to local, healthy food, the HLFM matches up to $20 each participant each week with HLFM Bonus Bucks. SNAP participants are encouraged to come to the SNAP tent at the Market to pick up the bonus $20 in tokens to use at the Market.
