Workers and volunteers are nearing the finish line as they ready Schellville for its 5 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 19 opening. Sponsored by Schell Brothers, the Christmas Village is located behind Tanger Outlets Seaside off Route 1 near Rehoboth Beach.
Admission is free and advance tickets are available at schellville.com. Walk-ins are welcome as well, but they will need to enter using a separate line.
New attractions this year include an expanded Snow Zone, more food and drink concessions, nightly entertainment in a new stage area, a sledding hill, game room and a new train. That’s on top of thousands upon thousands of decorations and lights as well as a beer garden, lighted maze, roller skating rink, vendors and visits with Santa Claus.
