The annual Rehoboth Beach tree lighting and caroling drew a large crowd to the Bandstand Nov. 29. Doug James and Mrs. Claus were supported vocally by the Cape Henlopen Choir. Jo Hearn, who donated the tree, was on hand with her family, including her first great-grandchild, to watch Santa light the tree and dazzle the crowd.
