Prizes will be awarded to these groups in these sub-categories: cookies, brownies, pies, cheesecake, candy, and “most unusual.” Rehoboth Main Street Executive Director Annmarie Westerfield says that in the past, people have dipped everything from scrapple and bacon to even jalapenos in chocolate.

Several bakeries and restaurants will be offering raffle prizes. Among them are Cake Break, Lupo Di Mare, Stingray, Snyder’s Candy, Touch of Italy and Lewes Dairy, along with Chef Dru Tevis. Raffle tickets are $5 for 20. To enter the raffle, just put a ticket or tickets in the bowl for the item you want. The winning tickets will be drawn at 3 pm, and the winners will be contacted.
