VERO BEACH – Most Vero Beach New Year’s Eve parties and events are going on downtown for a block party as we leave 2016 for 2017. There are a few things to do for New Year’s Eve in Vero Beach with fireworks, so mark these events on your Florida calendar.

Please, if you plan to drink, don’t drive. Find a designated driver, or you can buy a breathalyzer from Best Buy for anywhere from $20 to $30. This device could save your life, or someone else’s.

Cab companies and Uber drivers will also be available if you can’t drive. Police will be on high alert, so please leave your vehicle if you can’t drive home.

If you live in Sebastian, you can check out our Sebastian New Year’s Eve events page for things to do in your area.
