Venetian Night is a aquatic parade of illuminated boats with Broadway musical themes set to music and followed by fireworks at Navy Pier’s south dock. The first event wasresented in 1958 and became one of my favoriteannual summer traditions at Monroe Harbor.

Navy Pier is a 3,300-foot-long (1,010 m) pier on the Chicago shoreline of Lake Michigan. It is located in the Streeterville neighborhood of the Near North Side community area. The pier was built in 1916 at a cost of $4.5 million. Navy Pier is one of the most visited attractions in the entire Midwestern United States and is Chicago’s number one tourist attraction.
