Venetian Night Highlights
2023: Venetian Night boat was called Toy Story. Very colorful and creative featuring “The Rockets Red Glare, a racecar commemorating Nascar's first venture into Chicago, and All-American Mr. Potatohead dancing and singing along with a Happy 4th of July banner. Entry was by: Diane & Adeline Bieniarz and Tim Kohlstedt.
2017: Venetian Night 7/3/17, winning boat: Ice Cream Truck presented by Diane & Adeline Bieniarz & Tim Kohlstedt.
2016: The WLYC sponsored Venetian Night was held on Saturday night, 7/2/2016. It was a perfect night with 11 boats participating in the parade around the lake.
2015: (with trophy & decorated boat) The WLYC sponsored Venetian Night was held on Friday night, 7/3/2015. It was a beautiful night and six boats participated in the parade around the lake. The winning boat was artistically created by the threesome of: Diane & Adeline Bieniarz & Tim Kohlstedt. Each person on this team did a different task in the design. One person drew it, another painted it and another put it to music. In fact they have won the last 4 years, so we recycled a hand created Yacht Club trophy placing a plaque on each side with their names and the winning years and themes. They were thrilled.
