Community, music and arts events of relevance to the Space Coast

Melbourne Municipal Band

You won’t need snow to enjoy our wonderful Sleigh Ride concert. This event is an annual tradition with all your holiday favorites – and more. The Handbell Choir from Eastminster Presbyterian Church will play for our preshow entertainment. Eastminster’s Kyle Jones also will join the band to sing some holiday favorites and some Frank Sinatra tunes. We'll then have Mr. Jones work over time as he narrates Twas the Night Before Christmas. It’s rumored that Mr. and Mrs. Claus will take a break from their holiday preparations to make an appearance, so bring the kids!
