Town of Melbourne Beach Christmas Tree Lighting

Every December, the Town of Melbourne Beach & the Melbourne Beach Parks Board host the Official Melbourne Beach Tree Lighting Event here in town. 

The MBVFD & MBVFA (our not-for-profit fundraising organization) also participate in the event by purchasing all of the refreshments and delivering Santa on the firetruck!  This year the MBVFA will also have pizza, soda, and chips available for purchase.  All proceeds will benefit the MBVFA and will go towards the holiday events that the MBVFA puts on throughout the year.  The Tree Lighting is a FREE, fun event for the whole family, so come out and get in the holiday spirit with your friends and neighbors!
