After events were canceled last year because of COVID-19, Rehoboth Beach entertained tens of thousands of people July 3 with its Independence Day fireworks celebration. Afternoon and early evening rain kept folks indoors until dark. However, after the poor weather blew over, masses of people descended onto the beach and Boardwalk.
If you missed the show, there’s still plenty of fun to be had, with a whole slate of events happening July 4 in Lewes – the boat parade at 1:30 p.m., the Doo-Dah Parade around 5 p.m. and then the annual Go Fourth Lewes fireworks display at dusk. Henlopen Acres is hosting its annual parade at 9 a.m. Dewey Beach’s annual fireworks display will take off at 9:30 p.m., July 4, from a barge in Rehoboth Bay. Bethany Beach has music from the 287th Army Band at 7:30 p.m., July 4, on the bandstand. On Monday, July 5, Love Seed Mama Jump will perform at 7:30 p.m., at the bandstand, followed by fireworks at 9:15.
