Last year, Main Street Delaware City, Inc’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Arrival of Santa by Fire-boat was a BIG hit.  It delivered no less than 350 potential customers to the town’s historic district on Small Business Saturday.  We’re doing the same this year on November 24th at 6 PM along the Grand Promenade Cross Walk that leads from the Post Office to the Fort Delaware ticket office.  The row of Christmas Trees and the Gazebo become lighted for the season at this Ceremony.

NEW!! For 2018!

*Holiday music for the event will be provided by First State Brass Band.

*We’re adding a decorated boat parade and

*More vendors!

This year we expect to increase those numbers.  Please leverage Main Street’s campaign and make Small Business Saturday a great success for your business!
