Georgetown — Delaware's 226th birthday was celebrated by several hundred people at 16 Mile's annual Delaware Day event.

With 16 Mile's beer on tap, folks enjoyed live music, corn hole, smores and food from local restaurants.

Delaware Day was created to honor the state's birth on Dec. 7, 1787, the day Delaware became the first of the colonies to sign the Constitution of the United States.

A portion of the proceeds from the event benefited Children and Families First.
