Santa pays a visit to Rehoboth for annual parade

The weather might have been mild, but it was snowing (sort of) in Rehoboth, Tuesday night, for the Annual Hometown Christmas Parade.

Residents and visitors lined the street for the annual parade sponsored by the Rehoboth Beach Fire Company. At one point, faux snow fell from the clouds.  A large crowd watched as more than 70 marching units made their way down the streets ahead of the star of the show, Santa Claus.

Santa arrived on a historic fire truck driven by Rehoboth Mayor Sam Cooper to the cheers of children of all ages.
