On Saturday, December 7th, the Town of Bethany Beach will host its annual Holiday Happenings from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at Town Hall. The event will feature face painting by Sunshine the Clown and photos with Santa complete with hot cocoa, cookies, and a station for children to write letters to Santa. Traditional favorites like horse-drawn wagon rides, trolley rides through town, and beach tractor rides will be extended until 4:00 p.m. The trolley will also be running to and from the following pick-up locations: Bethany Beach Books, Grotto Pizza (next to the Nature Center), and South Coastal Library until 6:00 p.m.
At 5 p.m. the fifth annual lighting of the holiday tree will take place on the Bandstand Plaza. Gather with friends and family for a special concert featuring the Southern Delaware School of the Arts Show Choir. Attendees are encouraged to bring hats, gloves, scarves, and canned goods to be donated to local charities. There will be bins near the tree for collection. Those who cannot attend the event can watch it on the West view beach cam via the Town website.
Holiday Happenings will once again kick off "Weekend Wonderland in Bethany," a town-wide collaboration with the Bethany – Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce and participating businesses that will offer special activities and incentives between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on the three Saturdays leading up to Christmas: December 7th, 14th, and 21st.
