Venice Beach Neptune Parade and Surfside’s 2 year Anniversary

It was an epic Saturday in Venice, one for the history books. Summer solstice, Surfside’s two year anniversary, and the Neptune Parade all collided on a sunny, not a cloud in the sky, 70+degree day at the beach.  And, Venice Paparazzi was on the scene to document it all!

Throngs of festively dressed locals danced and paraded down to Surfside at about 2:00 p.m. to partake in the annual crowning of the Venice Beach Neptune King and Queen.  After a few ice cold beverages, the revelers made their way to the ocean for a ceremonial dunk in the Pacific.  Post baptism, the crown bounced back to Surfside for a long day of live music and celebration.  The band line up was: Venice Beach Dub Club, Fly N Lion, and Brobots.  The bands killed and the crowd stayed hydrated thanks to generous specials  and a stellar staff.  Way to go Surfside, that was awesome!
