Our Viewfinder photo feature focused its lens on the Fourth of July celebrations in the Venice Canals.
A downwind regatta drew crowds who lined the bridges and walkways as contestants on kayaks, canoes and other wind-powered watercraft raced down a canal and a rubber ducky race turned a portion of the canals into a sea of bobbling bright yellow rubber ducks. The Venice Canals Association held the events and hosted a community party.
The children's division of the downwind regatta kicked off about 1:45 p.m. under a grey overcast that would later burn off and breezy conditions as seen by the blowing flags on a canal bridge.
As always, if you have your own photos to share, please feel free to upload them.
