10th Annual Light Up Viera Holiday Parade:  Unwrap The Magic of Christmas

The 10th Annual Light Up Viera Holiday Parade, presented by the Viera Community Institute, includes parade elements never before seen in Brevard County on Saturday, December 3, 2022.


Spectators can look forward to ten professional cold-air inflated balloons that range in size from 14 to 25 feet in height and will have 10-12 handlers each dressed in matching bibs. The final balloon will be a helium-filled nutcracker that will tower above the crowd with its 18 handlers and a professional guide. The parade route is shorter this year for the balloons but there is plenty of designated viewing and parking areas.


“This is an exciting year for the parade and the community! Not only are we celebrating a milestone anniversary but have a spectacular new unique element to introduce to the spectators,” said Laurie Widzgowski, Marketing & Events Coordinator for The Viera Company. “You won’t want to miss this year’s lineup.”


iHeartRadio announcer Mindy Levy of 99.3 FM will return as the parade’s main emcee with her co-announcer, Wingnut from 95.1 FM. The annual pre-parade fireworks display, scheduled at 6:00 p.m., will kick-off the holiday parade.


The parade will have a few sponsored floats and representatives from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office including their mounted posse, Brevard County Fire Department, walking units from our local sports teams and dance groups, as well as professional entertainers to brighten and amuse attendees with their unique acrobats, synchronized routines, swirling lights and other surprises.


The parade will have six marching bands this year, representing Viera High School, Rockledge High School, Satellite High School, Astronaut High School, Merritt Island High School, and Eau Gallie High School. The Viera Company, parade sponsor and master plan developer for the community of Viera, will provide a generous donation to each high school that participates in the parade, with funds going toward their music programs.


Two food truck areas along the new route will include Espresso Yourself Mobil Coffee, Cajun Soul Bistro, Space Coast Sliders, 4th Street Fillin Station, Nomads Rolled Ice Cream, 7 Brew Coffee, Mr. D Ice Cream and More, DejaTea Boba and Bites, and more!


There is still time to be a part of the event as a sponsor or volunteer by contacting events@viera.com.


“Events are a key ingredient to creating and fostering a sense of community and place that make a master planned community more than a collection of buildings,” said Scott Miller, President of the Viera Community Institute. “The Viera Company and the Viera Community Institute are exceptionally grateful to the staff, volunteers, and sponsors who bring these events to life and demonstrate their care and commitment to Viera through their time and effort.”
