Rehoboth Beach Hometown Christmas Parade

November 29th, 2019

The Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company will be hosting this year’s Rehoboth Beach Hometown Christmas Parade and Cookies with Santa event. This year’s parade will be held on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2019 AT 6:30 pm. Registration forms and additional information are available on our website

This year’s parade is being presented by the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company with the support of the City of Rehoboth Beach and Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce. We are hoping to have best Christmas Parade that the Rehoboth area has ever seen. 

The Parade will line up on the North Side of Town using Fifth Street, Henlopen Avenue, and Columbia Avenue with some groups also lining up on Sussex Street. Please watch for parking and travel restrictions on the day of the Parade. 

Persons marching in the parade are being directed toward the left lane as they come in on Rehoboth Avenue where they will be directed around the circle and onto Henlopen Avenue toward their line up stakes. 

Persons coming to Rehoboth to watch the parade are asked to move to the right lane as they come in on Rehoboth Avenue and then straight up Rehoboth Avenue from the Traffic Circle or come into Rehoboth Avenue from State Road or Bayard Avenue from Coastal Highway. The Convention Center Parking lot will be open for parking during the Parade and for Santa’s Christmas Party. 

Parade marchers and watchers are reminded that there is construction on the Coastal Highway Canal Bridge and to allow travel time for any congestion from the construction or parade line up. 

Residents, guests, visitors, and family home for the Holidays, can all come together to enjoy the parade, island lights, the Christmas tree, and, of course, the arrival of Santa Claus himself. Santa Claus will be hosting his Christmas Party in the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center after the Parade this year with refreshments and a gift for all children.
