Things to Do in Brevard County This Weekend: 02/01 to 02/03
Plenty to do in Brevard this weekend to knock out those winter blues. Tonight from 3pm-9pm at the Viera Regional Park is a Farmers Market and Food Truck Event. The Food trucks get there around 5pm perfect to go straight after work or grab the kids and meet there! This event is family friendly and perfect for the foodie in all of us.
Then at the Hilton Melbourne Rialto Place from 530-830 is the Melbourne Regional Chamber of Commerce award ceremony. This year’s theme is ‘Let the Adventure Begin.’ Guests are encouraged to wear Indiana Jones/Adventure Attire.
Also tonight from 530-830 at the Fifth Avenue Art Gallery is 100% Pure Florida. This Art Gallery will feature art that is on exhibition to be judged against art around the state. Please come and meet our local artists. This gallery is located in the Eau Gallie Arts District so it is also a great opportunity to explore the area. For those who love a beautiful wall murrel, check out some of the street art that inspires us all.
The event that continues to go strong is the Ballroom beginner group class and dance party. This is located at the Melbourne Ballroom at 6300 N. Wickham in Melbourne and goes from 645-10pm.

On Saturday, start your morning out right with a 5k themed Superhero at 730am till 1030am. This event will take place at the Avenue in Viera and is a fundraiser for Friends of Children of Brevard. This non-profit helps children who have been abused, abandoned, or neglected in our county and helps support the Guardian ad Litem Program. If you haven’t heard of them or want to get involved with children in the community that could really use a mentor, please check them out.
Then on Saturday from midnight till 11am at the Love Bugs Bakery is a Princess Pajama Party. There will be meet n greets with the princesses with photo ops and sing alongs. Then each princess will also have the chance to have a donut that goes along with the theme. I heard these tickets sell out quick, so get yours before it’s too late.
At the Hans Christian Anderson Elementary in Rockledge is the 2019 Block Kids Building Contest at 9am. This event has a competition with building equipment for kids and face painting for those too little to participate.
