VENICE - A new exhibit is coming to Venice in October and it centers around the history of sports in the city.

Beginning October 7th, the city of Venice and the Venice Museum will put on "Playing in Paradise: The History of Venice Sports." The exhibit will be displayed at the Historic Triangle Inn at 351 Nassau Street South. Hours for the exhibit are Mondays through Wednesday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. There will be a sneak peak preview of the exhibit prior to the Venice Indians football game on October 4th. That is their homecoming game.

This exhibit is much more than just Venice High School's very successful sports program. Famous athletes who have lived in Venice, along with other great sporting events that were hosted in the city will be on display.
