Rehoboth’s tree is lit, let the holiday season begin

Thousands pack Bandstand for annual sing-along Nov. 29; many more local events happening
December 5, 2019

Thousands of people packed themselves into the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand area for the city’s annual Tree Lighting and Sing-Along Nov. 29. The temperatures were cool, but the winds were light – a perfect evening for the event. Clear Space Theatre hosted the sing-along. The tree was donated by Ed and Traci Humphries of Rehoboth.
