The inaugural Mrs. Roper Romp in Rehoboth Beach

The day will begin at 12:30 p.m. with all Mrs. Ropers gathering for a group photo in front of the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand. From 1 to 4 p.m., the group will romp all over downtown Rehoboth Beach to spread good cheer and take advantage of the specials being offered.

More than 10 local bars and restaurants will participate by offering food and drink specials to those in costume, as well as other surprises.

The romp is a costumed bar crawl based on Mrs. Helen Roper, a character on the 1970s TV show, “Three’s Company.” Mrs. Roper was the wisecracking, caftan-wearing, love-deprived wife of landlord Stanley Roper. The romp began in 2013 as a Million Mrs. Roper March of men and women wearing caftans and curly red wigs during a New Orleans parade. Today, there are countless Mrs. Roper Romp/Bar Crawl groups all over the world.

Donation boxes will be available at each location. This year, the event will raise funds for Rehoboth Beach Main Street and West Side New Beginnings.
