10 Ways to have a Florida Christmas in Brevard County

Attend a Christmas Parade 

  Across the county, there are many Christmas parades that are unique to its town. The Palm Bay parade stretches about 3miles down Malabar Road and usually has thousands of families camped out on the side of the main road, ready to see all of their friends walking in or riding on a decorated float in the parade. In the Melbourne parade, you'll see many of your favorite local businesses and schools waving and handing out candy. The Viera Parade is known for their firework show, and this year is thier first year to introduce large balloons (like you'd see in the infamous Macy's Day parade). 

Bass Pro Santa

  If you're looking for the best Santa experience for your children, Bass Pro on Palm Bay Road is the place to go! First, reserve your time with the big man by visiting their website. Then be sure to get there early so you the kids can partake in the festive activities they have in Santa's workshop. They give you a complimentary picture with Santa, but of course you can order more for family. 

Festival of Trees

  The Junior League of the Space Coast holds an annual Festival of Trees event each year that is free to walk through. There are many theme decorated trees and wreaths that you can admire and also vote on your favorite. Small business are also set up with great gifts to purchase for holiday gifts, and you will also see Mrs. Claus too! Cooking with Mrs. Claus is set up to demonstrate how to eat healthy, while also make fun holiday treats. 

Letters to Santa

  Want to be sure your wishlist makes it directly to Santa? Realty World Curri Properties in Satellite Beach has a big mailbox set up at their front entrance where your child can leave their letters and also receive a note back from him too. 

Lockmar Light Tunnels

  A hidden gem neighborhood exists just south of Palm Bay Road, called Lockmar. They have been known for their Christmas Light Tunnels that stretch for miles. Street after street decorate their trees, homes, yards, fences and most importantly.. their roads. Thousands of lights arch over the streets just high enough for cars to roll through. 

Candlelight Shopping

  Downtown Melbourne hosts their Candlelight Shopping each weekend on New Haven Road. This is a great way to shop local and support small businesses within your own community. Have dinner at the mom and pop restaurants, listen to live music, take a carriage ride, and even stay at the Hotel Melby to keep the festivities rolling. 

Christmas Boat Parade

  Another quaint neighborhood in Brevard County is Turkey Creek. This year marks their 20th annual boat parade. Decorate your boat, kyak, SUP or canoe and join in on the parade fun. Or sit along the creek and watch as they float by... one of the many locations to get a good view is at the Captain's House at Goode Park.

Surfing Santas

  Why should we let Santa have all the fun? Put on your best Santa suit and hang ten with hundreds of other Florida Christmas lovers. Surfing Santa Day happens at Coconuts, at Cocoa Beach, each year and is fun even if you are just a spectator. 

Christmas Lights at Lantern Park

  In the North part of the county, there is a small neighborhood that has amazing lights where you can get out of your car to look around. Lantern Park makes you feel like you are in a hallmark Christmas town. It's another hidden gem that is a must see to feel that Chrsitmas magic. 

Florida Home Shopping
