Brevard County’s 9th Annual Law Enforcement Reverse Christmas Parade Tuesday

Published on


In the heart of Brevard County, a unique holiday tradition has been bringing joy and festive spirit to the community for the past nine years. The 9th Annual Law Enforcement Reverse Christmas Parade is set to bring the community together once again on Tuesday, November 28th, in a vibrant display of generosity and holiday cheer.

A Unique Twist on Holiday Celebrations

Initiated in 2015, the Reverse Christmas Parade is an innovative concept where instead of receiving, participants give. Citizens line up along the parade route, not to watch floats pass by, but to hand over new, unwrapped toys to law enforcement officers. These officers, including Sheriff Wayne Ivey and various Chiefs of Police, traverse the parade route across nine different locations in the county, collecting gifts for children.

More Than Just a Parade

What started as an idea to ensure every child in Brevard County enjoys a merry Christmas has now become a cherished community tradition. This event isn’t just about the parade; it’s a heartfelt initiative ensuring that every child in the area experiences the joy of the holiday season. The sense of community spirit and the act of giving back are at the core of this celebration.

Join the Festivities

Residents are encouraged to participate in this extraordinary event. By bringing a new, unwrapped child’s Christmas present, they can contribute to this wonderful cause. The parade, led by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Motor Unit, promises to be a spectacular event. And let’s not forget Junny, the beloved figure who will be there to add to the festive atmosphere!
