November 23: Blue Friday

What are your plans the Friday after Thanksgiving? Join our Blue Friday movement! For one day we're taking a break from holiday shopping to get down to the water with family and friends. You can take a boat ride, go fishing, or simply take a walk along the waterfront. The main thing is getting outside on or near the Chesapeake Bay rather than going shopping. Tag us in your photos on social media and use the hashtag #bluefriday for a chance to be featured in PropTalk!
