Rain doesn’t stop Rehoboth Christmas parade [gallery]

A cold rain didn’t damper the holiday spirit at the annual Hometown Christmas Parade in Rehoboth.

Spectators bundled up and hid under umbrellas to watch more than 75 units parade their way down Rehoboth Avenue Tuesday night.

In addition to floats and dancers, Santa made his traditional appearance on an antique fire truck. After the parade, Santa met with kids in the Rehoboth Convention Center where parade-goers could warm up with some cookies and hot chocolate.
