Rehoboth Beach — The beach and Boardwalk looked like a scene from "Where's Waldo?" July 4 as tens of thousands of people crowded into downtown Rehoboth Beach for the annual Independence Day fireworks show.

Fireworks from Dewey Beach could also be seen on the southeastern horizon as The Funsters finished up their first set on The Bandstand about 9 p.m. Then shortly after 9:15 p.m., Rehoboth's show kicked off. Following the 20-minute display, The Funsters played a second set as folks shuffled out of town.
