Capital Holiday Celebration

The Capital Holiday Celebration, sponsored by the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce, got the holiday season started in a big way with various activities on Loockerman Street Thursday night in Dover.

The event started on the east end of Loockerman Street at the Dover Public Library and stretched as far west as near the Duncan Center.

It featured a food drive, the singing of carols and the traditional tree lighting.
