St Marks Day 25 April 2013

I understand that to celebrate the festival of St Mark there is a gondola race from St Elena to Punta del Dogana - and a procession in St Marks Square. Does anyone know whether this will happen this year and if so please let me know of any details such as times and best place to view the race. Thank you

This blog post may help give you an idea of the other festivities and traditions for the day. It was in my "inbox" today, and timely to share.

Does anybody know what time the Gondola race starts and where it takes place? Is there any information on the internet for any specific events taking place on this day as scouring the net has not been conclusive.

Many Thanks

There is an English button but it's not working for me.

The race starts at 9:30-10am between Arsenale and the Punto della Dogana, runs up the Grand Canal to Riva di Biasio, turns back to finish in front of the Rialto market.
