The annual Rehoboth Beach fireworks display delighted visi-
tors and ushered in Independence Day events July 1. Fireworks
enthusiasts got into town early, set up shop on the beach, milled
about in their red, white and blue clothing, and listened to The
Funsters before and after the show.

The Pennsylvania-based Zambelli Fireworks set off hundreds
of fireworks and land-based cakes over a 20-minute span. Vol-
unteer fire companies, police departments and state agencies
joined the Rehoboth contingency to make sure visitors enjoyed
their time safely.

The Cape Region continued to celebrate Fourth of July fun
through July 4, with events in Lewes, Milton, Dewey, Henlopen
Acres and Millsboro.
