A SEASON OF CELEBRATION
CITY OF PORT ST. LUCIE
The beautiful Star of David makes the perfect place for a holiday photo op during
the Port St. Lucie Festival of Lights at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Event Center.
can, if you get your timing right. The Stuart Christmas
parade at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2, organized by the
Visiting Nurse Association, will satisfy any desire for
big fancy floats, loads of lights twinkling in the dark,
bands, cheerleaders and more.
But on Saturday, you’ll have to scramble around.
The Hobe Sound Christmas Parade starts at 1 p.m. on
Bridge Road; it’s a long one and definitely great if you
want to take your little ones to a daylight parade. The
decorations are fun and creative, the marchers have a
good time and so do the parade watchers. To get an
advance peek go to www.hobesound.org and look for
Christmas Parade, where you’ll find loads of photos at
the bottom of the page.
There is also a parade Saturday during Festival
of Lights at the Port St. Lucie MIDFLORIDA Credit
Union Event Center.
Next, you’ll either have to pick one or see part of
each. The Vero Beach Christmas Parade starts at 6 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 3, and heads down Ocean Drive, a caravan
of big floats, lighted figures and twinkling lights
everywhere. You can get a tempting preview by going
to www.verobeachoba.com/christmas-parade and
enjoying some videos from previous years. The Vero
Beach Sunrise Rotary is hosting the parade this year,
and it will march along the traditional Ocean Drive
route from Flamevine to Live Oak starting at 6 p.m.
At 6:30 p.m., the Sebastian parade’s floats roll along
Indian River Drive from the boat ramp south to Riverview
Park. Costumed characters, lights and all the
trimmings are there for everyone to enjoy. >>
