Don't be a Grinch!
Despite the pandemic, Christmas cheer is still shining bright in the Cape Region. Santa Claus and a small group of masked children flipped a giant light switch Dec. 4, turning on the lights of several homes along Sussex Drive and ceremoniously kicking off Lewes Lights, a month-long competition.
Christian Mullins and Debra Evalds brought the event to life, working together to formulate an aggressive marketing campaign with no funding. The event is designed to be a COVID-friendly affair that can be viewed without leaving the car.
“My goal, if nothing else, is to bring the spirit of the Lewes Christmas parade to every car driving through,” said Evalds, who started the event, in part, because traditional holiday functions were canceled. “We can’t have the parade this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t crank up the music, get in our cars and have our own little parade every night driving through Lewes.”
