Full Text:
6th Annual Venice Canal Festival Sunday September 29 from noon until dusk The first Venice Canal Festival was conceived in 1969 in the fight to save our Canal community from being wiped out by the progress of real estate interests and the plan to create a private residential marina. The continuing purpose of the festival is to visibly demonstrate that we have here a community worth preserving and that the canals themselves constitute a public recreational resource that should not be taken from the people. On the day of the festival we want our neighbors to see who we are, what we do, and to share the pleasures of the canals with us. The purpose of the festival is not to sell commercially-made wares or to make money, but to celebrate our community and to share what we ourselves do and make. We invite all artists, craftspeople, performers, cooks, organizations and individuals who live in Venice to join us again in celebration. We invite people to have a good time and to help save an endangered species -- the residents of Venice. for information call 823.74.52 or 821.71.13
