The Health First Palm Bay Hospital Holiday Light Parade, presented by the City of Palm Bay, is scheduled for Saturday, December 7 at 6:30 pm.
This year’s theme is “Stars and Stripes in Lights” to honor America, our military, and veterans on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
Brevard County’s premier holiday parade will feature over 80 entries. Brightly lit floats, marching bands, cheer squads, motorized vehicles, and more will proceed along the parade route, delighting the crowd and ushering in the holiday season.
