December 18-20: Santa’s House on the Boardwalk
One of the most exciting parts of the holiday season is getting a chance to talk with Santa. This year, he will be making a visit to his Rehoboth Beach home from Friday, December 18 to Sunday, December 20. Located just down the street from The Avenue, visit the boardwalk and share your Christmas wish list with Santa Claus. His house will be open to guests from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Sunday. There is no cost to visit, but donations are welcome.

Area shops will be open throughout the celebration for all your last minute holiday shopping needs. There is even a gift wrapping station you can stop by between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.
December 19: A Not So Silent Night
