The 9th Annual Holiday Lighting of the Venice Sign is happening and it is going virtual! Join the Venice Chamber of Commerce and Venice community on Saturday, December 5th from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, virtually on any device by tuning in to Facebook.com/VeniceChamber. The one hour program will be hosted by long-time Emcee and Venetian Mike Newhouse, and will feature holiday messages from some of Venice’s favorite restaurants and bars. Event highlights include presentations to the winners of the 2020 My Venice Holiday poster contest and an award honoring the 2020 Venice Local Hero. The celebration continues at 7:15 pm with the traditional countdown to pull the symbolic switch lighting the iconic Venice sign in red and green colored bulbs. This year, the Venice Chamber is excited to welcome Jon Huertas, joining as the special guest who will light the Sign and usher in the holiday season. Jon will join past celebrity residents Robert Downey Jr, Angelica Huston, P!nk, Robby Kreiger of The Doors, Matthew Modine, Andy Summers of The Police and Emmy-nominated actress Linda Cardinelli.
