Kick Off The Holidays At The Venice Holiday Parade

Venice Holiday Parade

It’s been a holiday tradition for close to 40 years and it’s back in Venice, FL. The Venice Holiday Parade returns on Saturday, November 22, 2018. In the past, over 3,000 parade participants representing 120 local schools, companies, churches, and social organizations have come together to make this one of the best parades in the state of Florida.

Everyone Loves The Venice Holiday Parade

That’s not even taking into account the thousands of people that line up every year to serve as spectators for this annual event. Once again, there will be plenty of pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, drinks, and other refreshments for sale by high school booster clubs, scouts, and local non-profit organizations during the event. Come early since there will be pre-parade entertainment beginning at 5:00 P.M. including music and the annual lighting of the downtown holiday decorations.
