Local Businesses Get Boost from Fourth of July Celebrations in Bethany Beach

Posted: Updated:

BETHANY BEACH, Md.- It was a sea of red, white and blue on Tuesday at the Bethany Beach Parade, but local business owners saw green too.

Steve Rhodes owns Rhodes 5&10 at Bethany Beach. He says business was a little slower than usual in June, but thanks to July 4 celebrations, he's seeing it pick back up.

"It's a big weekend we look forward to," he said. "It certainly kicks off with the July Fourth weekend."

Thousands lined the streets at the annual Bethany Beach Fourth of July Parade. Some interesting characters, like Benjamin Franklin and Santa Claus, made special appearances.

An awards ceremony and concert followed the parade.
