About the Venezian Fairy Kingdom

On November 12, 2019, the City of Venice welcomed Princess Buttercup. She is the Fairy representative for the newly formed Fairy Kingdom of Venezia that was created in Venice, Florida. The King and Queen sent her to the City Council to receive a proclamation of welcome. After several scouting trips, the fairies chose Venice for their new kingdom. They found Venice to have abundant sources of water, thriving stands of trees, magnificent flowers and blossoming bushes and many neighborly creatures in the woods.

The fairies were impressed with the variety and culture of our community. Lovers of art, music, theatre and dancing, they were dazzled with our community’s offerings. They have also found the people to be very friendly and helpful. Volunteers at Venice MainStreet have help them to find locations for their new homes. Artists at the Venice Art Center and ceramics students from Venice High School’s Art Department have helped to design their new habitats to accommodate their personal tastes. If you look sharp, you may find the fairy doors appearing throughout our historic downtown. Don’t disturb their houses or scare them. They may move or disappear if frightened. Venice is proud to welcome fairies to our town.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
