Viera holiday parade set for Saturday

Light Up Viera Holiday Parade will take place Saturday at 6:10 p.m.

“I mean a parade usually just means being thrown free things like candy and once I got a water bottle so that was pretty cool.” sophomore Tatum Berard said.

There are professionally lit floats that will travel two miles with high school marching bands, food trucks and a surprise character meet and greets.

“I think a turkey will show up because it’s around Thanksgiving,” sophomore Trinity Sweet said.

There will be fireworks shown at 6 p.m. to start off the event.

“I like the idea of the fireworks and think it’s a cool addition but I feel like they would make more sense after the end of the parade,” sophomore Shaun Knapp said.
