Venice Sign Gets Lighted

The Venice Symphony Orchestra started playing just before 8 pm. The closed-off street had Art Crawl, Yo Venice, and you name-it booths close to the post office. Sign lighting didn’t happen until approximately 9 pm. George Francisco, who instrumented the Venice Sign Lighting event, received a special certificate from Councilman Mike Bonin. There was no notable celebrity. The celebrity was artistic children from the local area. They were each given a certificate. Venice Neigborhood Council President Mike Newhouse passed out t-shirts with a Panda on one side, indicating the Panda bear will be part of the tradition.
