Venice Spring Fling 2018
Venice has a great deal happening in Music and Art. Two events that highlight the spirit of the community, or at least for me they do, are the Venice Spring Fling and the Venice Beach Music Festival. Both events are sponsored by the Venice Festivals. Both events are geared to promoting the arts including music, dance and literature.
I have been sick this month, so I only took a little visit. Spring Fling happened on May 19 this year. There were artists, dancers, writers group “ZZYZX WRITERZ”, and the local free paper “Breachhead.” They also were collecting cans of food for the homeless. This has become a big problem in Los Angeles.
No matter how gray things may be in America, politics, news, or other parts of Los Angeles, Venice Beach is always colorful and you can always find someone with a smile.
Note the Venice Beach Music Festival is August 27, 2018. I have been going to both events since I think 2012. Fun day to dance and see pretty things. Plus there is usually some free stuff from a vendor sponsor or two.
