Virtual Venice Holiday Sign Lighting
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 pm to 7:30 pm virtually on any device. The one hour program will be hosted by long-time Emcee and Venetian Mike Newhouse and will feature live on-site drop in broadcasts at 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. The to-be-announced Special Guest will light the Sign and usher in the holiday season. This year’s surprise honoree 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.
