Thinking of going to Venice's Carnevale - input appreciated

We've always wanted to go to Carnevale and are seriously considering making 2018 the year to go.  My wife and I are in our 60's, we live in California and have been to Europe about 25 times over the years, with about 5 stops in Venice.  I'm an avid amateur photographer and have been truly enchanted by the images I've viewed of Carnevale in the past.

We always stay in apartments and have found a nice one still available  from February 5 - 15 near San Marco.  I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or negatives (I'm certainly aware there will be crowds) on being at Carnevale.  My biggest concern is the weather, but I can't do anything about that other than hope for the best and take appropriate clothing.  We like to cook and don't go to restaurants too often so not worried much about the inflated prices during this event.

Thanks for your assistance.
