The lights on the Venice Sign will be shining in the colors of the rainbow for the month of June in celebration of Pride, diversity, and community.
Here is a message from Venice Chamber President George Francisco.
This will be the 5th year that the historic Venice Sign has been lit in the colors of the Pride flag. Originally lit to celebrate the one-year anniversary of marriage equality passing into law in California, the colorful commemoration is more welcome than ever in this time of pandemic and unrest where gatherings and celebrations have been restricted due to Covid-19.
About the Venice Sign:
Spanning across Windward Avenue at Pacific, the VENICE Sign in lights is a modern day replica of the one originally installed in 1905 by the legendary Abbot Kinney.
It is a defining symbol of Venice, past and present.
In 2007, the Venice Sign Restoration Project recreated and installed the contemporary version of this historic sign. Since that time the Venice Chamber has been responsible for the sign and for protecting its trademark.
