The holidays have come to Vero. As we prepare for the final few days before the events to come, it is a great time to reflect on spending the holidays in our beautiful, coastal home.

There are many wonderful events that take place in Vero during the holidays. Vero kicks off the holiday season with its family-friendly fun of The Festival of the Trees. It’s a chance to see beautifully and creatively decorated trees as well as the chance to ice skate on a synthetic ice rink! The Vero Classical Ballet kicks off the holiday season around Thanksgiving with performances of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. The performance of this timeless classic can inspire us for the holidays and adds to ours and our children’s cultural education. As we move closer to the holiday, the Oceanside Business Association and Sunrise Rotary Club sponsors the annual Vero Beach Christmas parade. This event has gotten bigger each year and is a great way to celebrate the season and our beautiful city with friends and neighbors. 

Many of us who live here believe that you don’t need cold and snow to feel the spirit of the holidays. You need friends and family, of course. But it doesn’t hurt to be living in one of the most beautiful places in the country. Let the sand be your white Christmas and appreciate how beautiful a palm tree looks when strung with lights.

From all of us here at The Star Team, have a wonderful, safe, and happy holiday season!
