Boat Parade Venice Canals

Participants get in the holiday spirit for the annual Venice Canals Boat Parade 

It's an event we all look forward to, The Holiday Boat Parade. But, in the spirit of safety, the Venice Canals Association (VCA) said it made the difficult decision to skip the event this year. 

VCA said the Best Dressed Homes and Bridges Contest is also cancelled. 

The events typically draw crowds to the Canals--something the VCA said is not permitted under COVID 19 regulations.

The organization said it can hardly wait to resume events in 2021. "We hope that you are all doing well during these difficult and unprecedented times!"
