Town of Melbourne Beach Christmas Tree Lighting

Every December our community gathers for Melbourne Beach’s annual Tree Lighting event.  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!

NEW FOR 2021:

  • Christmas display in Ryckman Park featuring 35ft light tree and snow machines.
  • DJ Strangelove spinning holiday classics.
  • Hot Beverages and Snacks on-site & available for purchase from local business Nautical Cafe.

As usual, your local hometown Fire Department will be escorting Santa to the event and the Melbourne Beach Volunteer Firefighters Association will have Oceanside pizza and sodas available for purchase.  All proceeds will benefit the MBVFA and will go towards the holiday events that the MBVFA puts on throughout the year.
