VERO BEACH — Waldo’s Restaurant will once again host the fun and wacky Barefoot Beach Ball to benefit The Vero Beach Lifeguard Association.
The Barefoot Beach Ball will be held July 9, 2016 from 4 to 8 p.m. Last year, guests came dressed in formal attire with a silly spin. Everything from bow ties with beach trunks to boas and bikinis were there, with flare!
This zany “barefoot black tie” event is fun for the whole family. Guests will be treated to great music, a free cocktail, fun beach toy giveaways, fancy hors d’oeuvres and more.
In keeping with the evening’s ambiance, there will once again be candelabras all on the beach along with beach and beachfront seating. Fun activities are planned to keep the mood merry until 7:50 p.m. (sunset) when the “hunk dunk” puts the lifeguards in the water.
Then, all in attendance will simultaneously jump in the ocean still dressed in their funky finery. Lifeguards will be manning the waters and great photo opportunities will ensue! Last year, the sax player of the band Dave & The Wave led a conga line into the ocean! This great band was a huge hit and will be back again.
Proceeds of this event will go towards helping the lifeguards build their new guardhouse on Humiston Beach while supporting a family friendly, fun event.
For more than a decade, Waldo’s has presented a big summer bash. The “Barefoot Beach Ball” replaces “Christmas In July” as the signature event of the summer and is sure to be as well attended! Parents rarely have the opportunity to dress up with their children; this event is designed to make happy family memories that will last a lifetime.
Tickets are $20 per adult (includes hors d’oeuvres and cocktail). Children under 17 free.
