By all accounts, the annual Abbot Kinney Festival in Venice last Sunday was a triumphant success! We're sorry we weren't able to stop and thank each of you personally for participating. You may have seen us whizzing by on our golf carts. Here's hoping all the fires we put out behind the scenes didn't create too much smoke! With 325 vendors, 3 beer gardens, 4 music stages, a whole Kids festival within the festival - all along a mile long street with about 100,000 attendees - it's quite an event!
We're so proud to be a part of the Abbot Kinney Festival Association - the non profit that puts on this show. Net proceeds from the festival are reinvested into the community to various worthy organizations. By far, our favorite part of the day is when we turn off our walkies, present the grant recipients their checks, and honor the Spirit of Venice awardees. It's always a pleasure to have Coucilman Mike Bonin there to preside.
