•  Joe Teti, co-host of Discovery Channel’s "Dual Survival" television series from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 3 and 4.

On Saturday, the first 50 shoppers will receive a Cabela’s cap. On Sunday, the first 50 customers will receive a Cabela’s gift card valued between $5 and $100. Customers 18 and older will have a chance to enter to win a $1,000 Cabela’s shopping spree throughout the weekend.

Cabela’s will host a variety of activities for the family from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting, including Cabela’s Youth BB Gun Range, Gore-Tex Extreme Weather Shelter, Delaware Department of Natural Resources Turkey Legacy Display and more.
