2017 Parade Route And Other Info

2017 Parade Route And Other Info

Over the last few weeks some questions have come through the website.  Thank you!  A FAQ page was created but I’ll create a post with the same info that is currently there.  If anyone has any other questions please comment on this post.  Thank you!

VHP 2017 – Due to construction behind the Community Center, the units going to the right at the end will instead be taken around the west side of Blaylock Park.

Questions are in bold, answers are in italics.

When is the 2017 parade?
2017 42 nd Annual City of Venice Holiday Parade
Saturday, November 25, 2017
Staging Starts at 3pm
Pre-parade Starts at 5pm
Parade Starts 7pm


What date and time will we be able to put our chairs out along parade route?
The City Ordinance allows for the placement of chairs on the parade route after 6:00PM on Wednesday.


Do you know what TV channel it will be on?
Sadly, it will not be televised this year.  Previous years it was aired on SNN


Where can participants park ?
All parking is on the streets of the City. Best place for participants is somewhere around the Community Center as that is where the parade ends.
There will hopefully be extra parking around the High School and the Publix parking lot. In other words, attendees are on their own for parking.


Is there a theme to the 2017 Christmas Parade that should be considered when working up floats?
The theme is Holiday (Christmas) anything beyond that is secondary. Just simple advertisements will not be allowed in the parade. All applicants have declared what they are doing.

  1. Why is the Holiday Parade not being televised, and why was the fact it was not being televised not made known?

  2. SNN told the Parade that they did not make enough revenue for ads to make it worth their while. so much for Community Service and the tradition.
