Venice wants people to save the date — Oct. 25.

The Tri-County Community Foundation sponsors the event, which the city calls a fun way for families and friends to gather at its parks to make them sparkle and shine.

The event runs three weeks from tomorrow from 9 a.m. to noon. All volunteers get free lunch at Maxine Barrit Park that afternoon.

People can sign up at
