Look for Eggstravaganza In the spring, an egg “hunt” for children on the lawn of Centennial Park. In October, depending on the timing of Halloween, you’ll find a costume parade and trick-or-treat event. Throughout the year, you can find sidewalk sales and concerts in Centennial Park. And of course, every Saturday, you’ll find the Venice Farmer’s Market in full swing from 8am until Noon.
