VERO BEACH FL/APRIL 2019 – Ocean Drive was hopping when thousands attended the 3rd Annual Vero Beach Easter Parade. Hosted by Dale Sorensen Real Estate and presented by Bill and Mary Ann Becker the popular event included a children’s Easter Egg Hunt, free photos with the Easter Bunny, a Golf Cart Parade, and a “New York Style” Bonnets and Ball Caps Parade.
A total of twenty-five thousand plastic eggs filled with treats only took the hundreds of children attending just minutes to clear the field. The egg hunt was sponsored by The George E. Warren Corporation.
Winners of the Bonnets and Ball Caps costume included Vanessa Foster in the Children’s division and Stephanie Hart in the Adult division. Golf cart parade winners included: the Schneider family for Best of Vero; Lori Higdon for Most Easter Spirit; Complete Marine Services for Most Humorous; and Market Square for Most Original. Golf Carts of Vero Beach sponsored the parade. Prize sponsors were White Orchid Spa, Lily Pad Vero Beach, Egg and Friends and Creative Carpet One.
“For three years in a row, the parade and event have been successful beyond our expectations,” said Matilde Sorensen, who came up with the idea. “The children have such a wonderful time hunting for Easter eggs, doing the arts and crafts and taking pictures with the Easter Bunny. The golf cart parade and Bonnets & Ballcaps contest is fun for those participating and watching. We’re so happy the community supports this event so whole heartedly.”
“The Vero Beach Easter Parade is all about the community and a celebration of Easter and spring,” said Dale Sorensen, Sr. “It could not be the success it is without the support of all the sponsors, and our dedicated and hard-working volunteers, many of whom are DSRE Sales Associates and staff members along with many others from the community. They are all committed to making sure the community has a wonderful time. It’s also a fundraiser for a great cause, the Boys and Girls Club of Indian River County. We want to thank everyone who came out this afternoon and participated by volunteering, sponsoring or attending.”
