Navy Pier is proud to partner with Chicago Yachting Association to present Venetian Night. A longtime favorite festival in Chicago that started in 1958, Venetian Night makes an exciting return to Navy Pier on Saturday, September 6. Gather at Navy Pier’s East End for one of the best areas to watch these illuminated boats decorated in the theme of your favorite Broadway musicals including Wicked, Annie, Chicago, Grease and The Phantom of the Opera, take to the water in a stunning aquatic parade, set to music. A spectacular Navy Pier fireworks display marks the conclusion of the parade. Judges will award prizes for first, second and third place winners, scoring them in these categories: adherence to the overall theme; originality; and lighting and sound. You can also be part of the judging to cast your ballot for “People’s Choice!” Votes will be accepted starting at 8:30 p.m. on parade day.
