VENICE, Fla. – Corned beef, pastrami, blintzes and knishes' were center stage Sunday at the annual Jewish Food Festival in Venice. The event was at The Jewish Congregation of Venice. This marks the 20th anniversary for the event which brings in more than 5, 000 hungry people every year.

Diners were treated to live music and a flea market among the food and activities. Milt Spieler of Venice said "the event is so popular because the closest place to get authentic Jewish food is Miami. So when an event like this brings authentic Jewish food to such a convenient location, people flock to the stuffed cabbages and corned beef!"

Early estimates indicated some 1,600 sandwiches and 1,800 stuffed cabbages were eaten at the festival Sunday.
