An Evening in Paris
October 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$25.00
Vero Heritage, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to preserving, educating and celebrating Vero Heritage. The organization operates and maintains the Heritage Center and Indian River Citrus Museum. Built in 1935, the building is a registered national landmark facility. The Heritage Center’s Main Hall is a popular rental venue for community and business events, family celebrations, and weddings.
On Thursday, October 11th, over 20 local vendors will transform the Heritage Center in to a Parisian-style evening street market, to create the shopping event of the season. Executive Direction Heather Stapleton says, “Last year was the first year for this creative event and it exceeded everyone’s expectations. Everyone had such a magical time! Several guests commented that they felt as if they had been transported to the rues de Paris. So, of course this year, we’ll make sure the evening is just as magical with several additions and improvements!”
Tickets include a complementary reusable event shopping bag, a welcome glass of bubbly, abundant French hors d’ouevres, and of course, French wines! Returning this year, but with new shows and offerings, are the Moulin Rouge style dancers from Power Entertainment Productions. And of course, The Parisian Hostess will be taking the runway by storm with her lively Parisianista fashion show. New this year is live French-style jazz and a traditional French mime in the style of Marcel Marceau. Stapleton quips, “We have so much interest this year, that we are literally spilling out of the building!” To further the delight, also new this year is the Cognac Courtyard, sponsored by Atlantic Hardscapes. While inside will surely be bustling, guests are invited to the lovely patio of the Heritage Center to slow down and sip meditatively.
Tickets are available at the Heritage Center. They can also be purchased on line at Eventbrite.com. Proceeds to benefit Vero Heritage, Inc a charitable 501(3)3 tax-exempt organization. For more information, please call the Heritage Center at 772-770-2263.
