Venice Christmas Parade 2016
by Dee Paul
The Venice Christmas Parade will be this Saturday, November 26th, beginning at 5PM for pre-parade activities. For over 40 years, thousands of participants have welcomed in the Holiday Season with a fabulous parade traditionally held the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Our guests at Inn At The Beach often come stay at the hotel every year, in order to enjoy all the parade festivities. It’s just a 3 block walk to Harbor Avenue, where the parade begins! Parade watchers know to come early with their lawn chairs in order to get a good spot along Venice Avenue. This community event is family oriented and children of all ages delight in the spectacular floats, music, and parade activities. You can’t predict everything you might see, but for a certainty, the last float will contain a very special gentleman, well-known to us all: Santa Claus. Over 100 local businesses contribute to the parade and it’s guaranteed that the Christmas lights and all the sounds and colors of this special season will inspire you to walk away filled with good spirit. As you look over the pictures from the past, you will see many favorites. Hope you will be able to join us for this special event.
