Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Carnevale

carnevaleHalloween is four months away, but if you can’t wait to dress in costume, the Carnevale! Venice Beach Festival is the place to be Saturday. The festivities, inspired by the Italian Carnevale, run from noon to 10pm and celebrate the diverse culture and arts within Venice Beach. There will be live music and DJs, food and vendor booths, and live performances including rock/jazz/blues, belly dancers and fire-spinners. In true Carnevale spirit, Jeff Costa, creator of the increasingly popular cardio-striptease, will be performing. The event is free and everyone is encouraged to arrive in a colorful costume. A masquerade afterparty caps the evening ($10 w/costume, $15 without).

June 25, 2005 – Noon to 10:00 p.m.
