RAII wins People’s Choice Award for Venetian Night 2015 at Navy Pier

On September 12, 2015, Robert Allan II led off the Venetian Night parade past the East end of Navy Pier.  The theme for 2015 was “Once Upon a Time,” selected by Betty Lerner of the Chicago Yachting Association.  We chose to represent the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale Frozen, as seen in the recent Disney production of that name.  Our team was led by Mary West and Alex Ross with assistance from Emily and August Etsch, Micah Bezold and the Captain.  Mary is an architecture student at IIT, and came up with the design for our entry.  Mary also starred as the Queen atop the boat (in a biting North wind!) as we cruised past the Pier, and later down the main branch of the Chicago River.  The judges awarded us third prize for the Night, but the people (voting via cell phone) gave us first place as the People’s Choice.  We had a blast and for any who might consider joining Venetian Night in the future, our costs were less than $100 bucks for the event.  All you need is youth, energy and talent – and we had enough of each.
