In search of the perfect Christmas tree

Jul 20, 2021

It’s the middle of summer, and what’s on the City of Rehoboth Beach’s mind? Where it’s going to find the perfect 2021 Christmas tree, of course.

Each year, on the Friday following Thanksgiving, the City of Rehoboth Beach hosts a community tree lighting and sing-along event at the bandstand. The 35- to 40-foot evergreen that serves as the community’s Christmas tree is donated each year by an area resident and cut down, transported, and installed by elves at JL Briggs & Company, Plummer & Son, and Delmarva Power.

If you have a large tree on your property that you’d love to see as a focal point of the Rehoboth Beach holiday celebration, please contact Communications Specialist Lynne Coan at [email protected] or 302-227-6181, ext 522. Spruce and Douglas fir trees make great Christmas trees, but any nicely shaped evergreen tree will do the job.
