Loveliest Venice Canals Holiday Boat Parade Ever!

There is no doubt that this years Venice Canals Holiday Boat parade was one for the record books. Twitter came alive with photos of packed bridges as smiling revelers cheered on amazingly decorated boats celebrating the festive spirit of the season. Was lovely to hear from a reader that it was the second anniversary of her first kiss with her now husband… and I could describe the scenes but the twitter pix will do it better justice! Fun!
