Historic Dodgertown to host holiday festivities

Historic Dodgertown holiday festivities to feature movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life”

Dodgertown LogoChristmas in Vero at Historic Dodgertown is sure to become a new favorite, seasonal tradition in Vero Beach. The event will feature a Christmas Village, an array of old-fashioned traditions and treats, a movie under the stars, and of course a visit from Santa.

Christmas in Vero will take place on Friday evening, Dec. 9, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and is hosted by Republic Productions Vero Beach.

Guests entering the Christmas Village at Holman Stadium will be welcomed with twinkling lights and carolers strolling among the holiday vendors. Seasonal foods and hot beverages will be available to be enjoyed throughout the evening.

Santa will be available for photos from 5 to 10 p.m. (with a few intermissions). Guests who purchase tickets online can begin to see Santa at 4 p.m.

The evening will conclude with an outdoor viewing of the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

“It’s a Wonderful Life,” starring James Stewart and Donna Reed, ranks among the most popular movies in cinematic history. The tale of George Bailey, a compassionate, small-town businessman who has given up on his dreams to help others, only to be rescued by the prompting of his guardian angel named Clarence, has touched millions of fans since its release in 1946. The story of life, love, redemption and discovering that everyone makes a difference, is a must-watched tradition for many. The movie, nominated for five Academy Awards, is on the American Film Institute (AFI) list of most inspirational American films of all time.

Tickets for Christmas in Vero are $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 3-17. Children younger than three-years-of-age are free.
