REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - This time of year on Route 24, just west of Coastal Highway, it's pretty typical to find cars lining the roadway, with their windows rolled down, and their radios blasting. That's because Apple Electric of the Rehoboth Beach area, has taken their holiday spirit to another level, all in the name of helping children. 

The company has created an elaborate show, with hundreds of lights, all of which are perfectly linked to a musical soundtrack played on a 88.1, a station which can only be heard in close proximity to the show.

Apple Electric is a drop-off location for Toys for Tots, and Owner Steve Prestipino said that the show is all about raising awareness for the charity effort. In the decade that it's been held, the company has received more than 1,000 toys every year. 

"It's about giving," he said. "This community has done a lot for my family. And it's nice to be able to give back." 

Prestipino said that they are no longer receiving any more toys, as of Wednesday, but he said the company will keep the lights up until the first weekend of January. 

"The whole community is giving back to itself," he said. "Because the whole community is pitching in." 

Apple Electric is located at 18854 John J. WIlliams Hwy in Rehoboth Beach. To see the full show, click here.
