Venice sign lit green for St. Patrick’s Day

The Venice Chamber of Commerce and the Venice Symphony Orchestra celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Tuesday with the first-ever lighting of the “O’Venice” sign!

The sign was lit green by new LAPD Pacific Division Captain Nicole Alberca and a reception was held at Bank of Venice by owner Tom Elliot.

On hand with Captain Alberca to help light the Sign were a host of community leaders including Carl Lambert, Abigail Meyers, Carol Tantau, Jason Teague, Ridaa Murad, Wesley Flowers, Sunny Bak, and Reta Moser to name a few.

Both the “O” and switch were designed and fabricated by architect Ramsey Daham and his firm Breakform Design.

The Chamber said looks forward to establishing this as another enduring tradition for the historic Venice Sign and the entire community.

Venice Paparazzi was on scene, check out their video:
