Holiday happenings kickoff a festive season

The holiday season is upon us and we can assure you that Rehoboth Beach and its surrounding areas do not skimp on holiday traditions. We have tree lightings, sing-a-longs, and holiday parades. It's truly a magical time here at the beach, sort of like being in Whoville, but without the Grinch hanging around. 

The Downtown Rehoboth Beach Holiday Tree Lighting & Sing-A-Long will be held on Friday, November 27. This hometown tradition, hosted by Clear Space Theatre, takes place at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand. Get those pipes ready and join hundreds of friends and neighbors for the sing-a-long at 6:30 p.m., followed by the tree lighting at 7:00 p.m. 

After the ceremony, grab dinner and start your holiday shopping. You can shop and save the entire holiday season. Beginning on Black Friday and continuing through Christmas Eve, several Rehoboth Beach businesses will be participating in a downtown markdown. Participating restaurants, shops, and services will offer 10% off. Rehoboth Beach has so many charming and unique shops that you’re guaranteed to find exceptional gifts for the special people on your list. So come on down and support local businesses while also receiving well-deserved savings. 

So what’s better than one tree lighting ceremony? TWO tree lighting ceremonies of course! Come down to Fifer's Market, located at Route 1 and Chicago Street in Dewey Beach, on Saturday, November 28 at 6:00 p.m. for the annual Dewey Beach Holiday Tree Lighting. Watch Santa and friends arrive in style to light the tree. The event, sponsored by the Dewey Beach Civic League, includes photos taken with Santa and friends, live music, bonfires, refreshments, and delicious food. 

Check out the Rehoboth Beach Hometown Christmas Parade on Tuesday, December 1 at 6:30 p.m. This annual tradition, presented by the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company, the City of Rehoboth Beach, the Rehoboth Beach – Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce, and Rehoboth Beach Main Street, promises to be the largest one to date. After the parade, everyone is invited to the Rehoboth Beach Fire Station on Rehoboth Avenue for refreshments and to hang out with Santa Claus.
