For the first time, the JFI team showed our holiday spirit through participation in the annual Venice Holiday Parade! This was the 42nd year for the nighttime parade in downtown Venice, with estimated attendance well over 15,000 people! The theme of our festive display was “Christmas Vacation” – and it could be seen by the number of lights decorating our boat! We handed out over 1,000 hacky sacks to children (and perhaps a few adults, too!) in what was a fun evening for all. Thank you to our friends and family who joined the JFI team in the parade … and a huge thanks to Mackenzie, our “Director of First Impressions,” for organizing our efforts and lending her fiancé’s (thank you Garrett Johnson!) beautiful boat!
