THE VIERA COMMUNITY INSTITUTE: 9TH ANNUAL LIGHT UP VIERA HOLIDAY PARADE
All Things Merry and Bright
This year’s 9th Annual Light Up Viera Holiday Parade, presented by the Viera Community Institute, will bring All Things Merry and Bright to spectators on Saturday, November 27, 2021.
Mindy Levy, iHeartRadio announcer of 99.3 FM, will return as the parade’s main emcee along with her co-announcer, Wingnut, from 95.1 FM. The annual pre-parade fireworks display, scheduled at 6:00 PM, will kick-off the holiday parade.

You’ll see new floats and entertainment in the line-up, as well as returning favorites,” said Laurie Widzgowski, Marketing & Events Coordinator for The Viera Company. “We look forward to having all elements of the parade back this year to start the holiday season.”
Spectators can look forward to decorated floats that will navigate their way through the parade route, 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.
