Holiday tree lighting event in Rehoboth Beach

Clear Space Theatre, but holiday music will begin at 6, provided by the Cape Brass Ensemble. The community tree will be lit at 7 pm.

This year’s community tree was once again donated by Dean and Debbie Smith. The Rehoboth-area couple is the first donor to provide a holiday tree for the city in back-to-back years. This year’s tree originally was an approximately 40-foot “green giant” arborvitae; after the tree suddenly snapped November 15 while being lifted off the trailer that brought it to the bandstand, this year’s holiday tree now stands at about 25-feet tall.

Providing assistance to the city in removing, transporting, and installing the tree this year were elves-extraordinaire Harry Caswell Inc., George W. Plummer & Son Inc., and Delmarva Power.

The tree lighting event is free and open to the public.
