Four things are responsible for the development of today’s Venice: the John Nolen plan, the Kentucky Military Institute, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and, from 1943 to 1956, not one but two airports.

Venice Aviation Society Inc. (VASI) and the Suncoast Air Center will celebrate that legacy from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at an open house at Venice Municipal Airport.
