The 35th Annual Centennial Christmas Parade 

Christmas Parade

Saturday, Dec 4th 2021 Christmas Parade News & Information

The Vero Beach Christmas parade has become a more beautiful and hugely attended event every year. Thousands of people come to Ocean Drive to watch the parade from crowded sidewalks for hours before the start of the parade. Hundreds of people crowd on beautifully decorated floats to participate after working long hours together decorating the floats. There is even a very successful 3k race run before the parade.

The OBA Board of Directors wants to thank you all for your support and participation over the years and especially the Sunset Rotary for their Volunteers on the day of past parades. We are so excited to bring it back following CDC Guidelines!

Please stay tuned for parade applications coming soon.

We are all looking forward to an even better and larger parade this year. Please enjoy the above video of last year's Christmas Parade, and consider joining us for the Farmers Market Christmas Event (more information coming soon!)


Applications will only be processed between October 15th and November 26th.  Applications received prior to October 15th will not be opened or processed or receipt confirmed until October 15th. You can send it in earlier but your check will not be processed until after October 15th.

Hosted by the Oceanside Business Association & Sunrise Rotary Club
