Venice Carnevale to feature fire dancers, music, costumes and Mr. Balloon Man

0
After years of wandering around Venice looking for a home, Carnevale organizers believe they’ve found a permanent location for their once-a-year extravaganza. On June 6, Windward Avenue, west of Pacific, will be closed to traffic as local romantics garbed in medieval finery set up booths, stages, while minstrels wander through the crowd.
It’s been a long search for Esquire Jauchem, Miriam More, and Brady Walker as they’ve tried to set down roots somewhere, and sometime, in Venice. Unlike the Carnevale in our namesake city on the Adriatic, our Carnevale is not connected with the beginning of Lent, or any other recognizable religious ceremony. Anytime is a good time to party and wear funny clothes in our Venice by the sea.
In past years, the Carnevale has set up shop on Ocean Front Walk, at the Venice Circle and, last year, at the old City Hall. One advantage for revelers this year is that there are two friendly bars – the Townhouse and Danny’s – just steps away from the fun.
The Beachhead is a sponsor and will have a booth. Other sponsors include Graphics Quarter, Project Alma, and The Townhouse. It’s not to late to become a sponsor or request a booth. Check the Carnevale website, <www.carnevale.us>.
This year’s music and performance line up includes acts such as The Bonedaddys, Wadada Raggea, Mr. Balloon Man, Harissa Belly Dancer’s Troupe, Kathy Leonardo, Street Smart with the Grand Finale featuring “Mutaytor,” whose show combines not only music, but also dancing, drumming and pyrotechnic acts.
