I’ve been talking up the Venice farmers market lately, so I need to cover my bases and let everyone know that it’s not running tomorrow. If you venture to downtown Venice in the morning, you’ll find the Venice Art Classic instead. The festival is in its ninth year; expect a variety of paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and photography. It runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is free!
It may still be a little chilly, but the sun will be shining all weekend. Get out and enjoy it! There’s been a long, loud statewide groan over this cold weather lately, but the news is reporting that this could be the end of it. Before we know it, we’ll be shoving our faces in front of AC vents again, panting from the humidity. Enjoy the cool weather while you still can!
