Lewes Christmas Parade

The 90th annual Lewes Christmas parade, presented by the City of Lewes and the Lewes Chamber of Commerce, will step off at 5 p.m., with a rain date of Dec. 10.

The parade theme is 'Celebrating an Old-Fashioned Christmas in Lewes', and its organizing committee is cochaired by Craig Beebe of NextHome Tomorrow Realty and G.W. Thompson of Canary Point Consulting. The committee has named former Mayor Ted Becker as this year’s honorary grand marshal, recognizing his years of service to the Lewes community.

After the parade, the tradition has been to officially illuminate the Christmas tree in Zwaanendael Park followed by candlelight caroling in the park. The tree lighting ceremony will commence shortly after the last parade entry passes by the judges’ reviewing stand in Zwaanendael Park. Info: 645-8073 or visit
