Are you looking to have some holiday-themed fun? Then plan on attending Winter Wonderfest right here in the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area! From November 17th to December 31st there are all kinds of great events to kick off the Winter Wonderfest season.
This year’s event is bigger, brighter and cooler than ever. The Light Spectacular holiday light display at Cape Henlopen State Park now features 30% more lights and a new route. The Christmas village has also expanded to include new shops and rides, and will feature popular attractions from last year like Santa’s workshop. There will also be an ice-rink for public use, skating sessions, birthday parties and more. You will want to bring the whole family to enjoy some festive fun for kids from one to ninety-two!
Grand opening weekend
In addition to the opening Light Spectacular and the Christmas Village, grand opening weekend, Friday November 17th – 19th, will feature several special events. On Friday and Saturday, check out “Dashing through the Show,” a fun 1-mile walk through the Light Spectacular. It’s the only opportunity to see the displays up close before vehicle tours begin on Thanksgiving weekend. Gates open at 4:00 pm and the start time is 5:00 pm. Participants will meet at the Christmas Village and there will be a free shuttle service.
If you’re looking for a little more competition, take part in the competitive 5K run-walk on Sunday. Gates open at 4:00 pm and the start time is 5:00 pm. For family fun that includes pets, join “Barking through the Show,” where furry friends on a leash are welcome to take their owners for a walk through the show. The walk begins at 6:00 pm and participants meet at Cape Henlopen State Park.
After these events, all participants are invited to celebrate at the Christmas Village and enjoy beverages, bites, and fundraising prizes as they get a glimpse at the new attractions.
