ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
The Centennial Celebration Finale will be held Saturday, October 26 in Historic Downtown Vero Beach. Following the Centennial Parade that will pass along 14th Avenue and conclude about high noon, everyone is invited to make their way to Pocahontas Park to enjoy a day long program highlighted by live bands, concluding with BeatleBeat featuring four talented musicians that re-create the look, style and sound of the most famous rock and roll band in the world – The Beatles!
For two sing-a-long, dance-a-long segments at 3:45-4:30 pm and again from 5:00-6:30 pm, BeatleBeat, known internationally as the world’s most fun and entertaining tribute show will take the stage! The band includes an all-star cast with members from the original Broadway and touring cast of Beatlemania and The British Invasion from Disney World’s EPCOT. BeatleBeat captures the music, energy and magic of a Beatles concert with authentic outfits of different eras.
With their famous black “Ed Sullivan” suits, BeatleBeat spans the Fab Four’s touring era with classic hits like “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, “I Saw Her Standing There”, “Help!” and many more early favorites! Then changing into colorful Sgt. Pepper suits, they will perform classic favorites from the “Summer of Love” including “Sgt. Pepper”, “With a Little Help from My Friends” and “Yellow Submarine” just to mention a few!
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and picnics; mingle with old friends and make new ones. Enjoy this glorious fall day…one community, making new memories together!
