Great times had by all at the 3rd Annual Venice Sign Lighting!  Check out event photos and video below!

About the Venice Sign:  The legendary Abbot Kinney introduced the world to Venice in 1905 on the 4th of July. Spanning across Windward Avenue at Pacific (then Trolley Way), 3-foot high letters spelling VENICE glowed to electric life!  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.  Click here for more info on the Venice Sign!   View photos of the the June 24, 2007 Venice Fest (the lighting of the restored Venice Sign for the first time.)
