KUDOS: Flamingos and Noah’s crew of animals lit up Venetian Night

To Ozaukee Press:

Thank you to all those who spent hours decorating their boats and themselves for Port Washington Yacht Club’s Sept. 4 Venetian Night, and thanks especially to the crowds of people who came to Rotary and Coal Dock parks and lined the marina breakwater to watch the boat parade.

The themes of the entries were as clever as ever this year. There was a crew of flamingos on a palm tree decorated boat and pairs of animals on Noah’s Ark. The ABBA tribute crew paid homage to the group’s hit “Dancing Queen” and the lighthouse entry looked right at home parading past its inspiration.

Thanks also to the Ozaukee County rescue boat for helping lead the parade through the harbor.

The yacht club plans to bring Venetian Night back next Labor Day weekend, perhaps with some additional fun. Stay tuned.
