Vero Beach party to give pineapples pride of place

October 27, 2018 by  

One of Vero Beach’s historic properties will be hosting a special celebration, and the whole community has been invited to join with their friends and neighbors in the festivities.

Hallstrom Farmstead will be opening its doors for its fourth annual Pineapple Party. This year will include an additional feature, as the dedication of its new historical marker has been incorporated into the plans for the occasion. Along with this, there will be an assortment of other activities and they will all be family friendly.

Guests who come to the property for the celebration will be admitted free of charge between the hours of 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. Barbeque dinners will be available for purchase, and Gary Lenar Moore and Goin’ Vinyl have been booked to supply the entertainment.

A display that will outline the history of pineapples and their cultivation as well as tips for carving them will be on site for the crowd to peruse, and those who are interested in historic clothing can stop by the exhibit that will feature articles worn by Ruth Hallstrom. There will be special activities just for the kids, and tickets for a raffle drawing for a handmade historical blanket will be on offer.

Anyone who would like to explore the history of the site even further can choose to take a tour of Hallstrom House. These are $5 each, and a brochure printing company can craft booklets that provide details about the property and its history to distribute during this sort of function.

This tip of the hat to Vero beach history will be taking place on November 10. The site can be found at 1723 Old Dixie Highway SW.
