Greyhounds Reach the Beach turned 25 this year and hundreds of the breed, along with their human companions, came to Rehoboth Beach during Columbus Day weekend. Traditionally held in Dewey Beach, this was the first year for the event being in the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. In addition to walking around town, the event featured speakers, vendors, a silent auction, a raffle, the Beer & Biscuit Mixer, the Blessing of the Hounds, local bus and walking tours. The event closed with a parade on the Boardwalk Oct. 13.
