REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – Rehoboth Beach city officials announced Tuesday morning they will not be holding their annual Christmas tree lighting and sing along celebration this year.

The city says the event was canceled because of coronavirus restrictions, but that the tree will still be put up and on display throughout the season.

“Besides our city Christmas tree and holiday sponsored lights, we have a lot of businesses in town, almost 400, that will also be in the holiday spirit and having their own decorations and lighting up,” Mayor Mills said.

Mayor Mills says the city will also be playing holiday music through the bandstand starting November 27.
