The Sun Fiesta is an institution in Venice. It’s been going strong since 1973, and it’s coming back for another year on Oct. 20–22. The Women’s Sertoma Club of Venice has organized and sponsored the event since 1994, and it uses it to raise scholarship funds.
If you’ve never been to the Sun Fiesta, now is your chance. Stop by and you’ll see why it’s a favorite for Venice locals. Let’s look at a few of the things you don’t want to miss during the festival.
The Bed Races
Ask someone about the Sun Fiesta and the person will probably bring up the Bed Races. This is easily one of the most popular events at the festival. Each team brings a bed and has one rider and four pushers plus a couple of relief pushers in case the pushers get tired out. The racers rush through the streets of Venice, trying to take down the others. This is so much fun to watch. You can expect to have a few good belly laughs during the event.
Who doesn’t love a good parade? The Sun Fiesta Parade is open to all organizations, service clubs, businesses, schools, and churches in Venice, and it typically gets a good turnout. From military personnel to high school cheerleaders, it’s usually an eclectic mix of local residents. It’s fun to participate in, and it’s just as much fun to watch. Grab a patch of land along the parade route and cheer on the people from your hometown.
Miss Sun Fiesta Pageant
The Miss Sun Fiesta Pageant helps women win money for college. It is also a great way to get to know the women of the community even better. This pageant is about so much more than good looks. It’s about poise, brains, and having the whole package. Stop by the pageant and see the women compete for the chance to get some money for college. This will change the way you think of beauty pageants.
