The 36th annual 2020 Vero Beach “Reverse” Christmas Parade was a huge success Saturday Dec. 5th, as an estimated 7,000 viewers in their vehicles drove by over 45 Floats & Displays, enjoying the Christmas holiday event. The 46 volunteers managed to keep the traffic flowing as happy faces and the many thank you’ s kept coming.
When the Christmas Parade was canceled on Ocean Dr., the Sunrise Rotary decided this town needs our Christmas Parade and designed a plan that was COVID safe and family fun. With the great cooperation from our City of Vero Beach, the Vero Beach Police Dept., the Vero Beach Airport, Recreation Dept. the plan was set in motion and in 35 days an awesome event was overwhelming attended.
A special thanks to all the volunteers, Floats/Displays and spectators that made this happy event.
