Venice Christmas Boat Parade…
Our lovely friends Beverly and Dave invited us to Venice for their annual Christmas Boat Parade Party. It is quiet the event every year! She sends invitations out one month prior and they are always adorable and very clear about what to bring and do. She then goes and stakes out her territory, this girl means business! This is done about two weeks before the parade! Yellow caution taped is used to mark the boundaries. Lawn chairs are even brought in early to lay claim to the property also. We love their passion for everything they do in life. There is no middle ground with them….one of the reasons we have hit it off so well together. On top of our mutual passions, we both became grandmothers last year! It is quiet amusing to me really!
I will tell you, they had one of the most elaborate set ups on the river for the parade. I was able to take a picture as she was setting up for the party.
The guests are starting to arrive…she even has Christmas music playing and name tags ready for them. The girl doesn’t miss a beat on anything! You can see why I love her so. Details, details, details!!!!! Just my style☺
The drawbridge is raised a few minutes before the parade to let the big lighted ships through.
I hope you enjoyed the parade! It is one of my favorite holiday events every year.
