Lewes Merchants’ Hospitality Night was a roaring success Nov. 29, as hundreds of people wandered in and out of downtown stores and restaurants for an early taste of the holiday season.
Shops offered discounts to entice shoppers to visit, and most offered free food and drinks throughout the evening. Out on the street, the Cape Chorale and Cape Jazz Band performed holiday tunes at one end of Second Street, while solo artists added their own holiday flair elsewhere downtown.
For the youngsters, Santa was ready and waiting to hear holiday wish lists.
Hospitality Night kicked off a busy holiday weekend in Lewes, which also included the Christmas Tour of Lewes and the Lewes Christmas Parade.
