The 2023 Vero Beach Christmas Parade, hosted by Vero Beach Sunrise Rotary, will be continuing the parade’s long legacy this year.

We continue incorporating technology to make the parade more accessible for people who may not be able to attend physically. There will be HOSTS to narrate the parade, and it will be on FACEBOOK LIVE!

Starting in September, float entries may also choose to participate in the Christmas Can Castle Build, a food drive to benefit the many Sunrise Rotary food pantries and other local charities The challenge will be moderated and broadcasted on FACEBOOK LIVE for all to see. Team fans are welcome to be part of the audience to cheer their team on!

The Christmas Can Castle CHALLENGE will be in November, tenativly set for the 14th.  Competitors will accumulate as many canned goods as possible. The competitors will only be limited to a certain space and height. They will be judged on the volume of canned goods, the artistic design, and the theme. After the event, all canned goods will be donated to local charities.

All event guidelines, dates, and locations can be found here.

Sunrise Rotary wants to thank the numerous businesses that are supporting the 2023 Vero Beach Christmas Parade and the Christmas Can Castle challenge!
