2016 Happening List Awards Bash

You’re Invited

NorthDelaWHEREHappening.com is rolling out the BLUE carpet on Thursday, June 23rd from 7:00pm to 11:00pm at the Waterfall in North Wilmington, where for nearly a decade their inspired patrons have used the halls as stage for life’s brightest memories. From exchanging handshakes to exchanging vows, the Waterfall has made events more picturesque and ideal than ever thought possible. Inside, custom dance floors made of marble, hand carved doorways and hand blown glass chandeliers come together to make you feel you’re strolling the halls of a palace. Outdoors, the green pastures and paths lead into running steams, gushing fountains, adorable bridges and luscious gardens. With so many events under belt, the Waterfall team knows what it takes to create an awe-inspiring backdrop. Perhaps, their hidden talent, yet often most memorable feature maybe the talent of the Waterfall chefs. The food is catered by an executive chef, where everything is prepared in house and from scratch, with the most meticulous attention to detail.  Just wait until you see this spread!
