Venetian Parade canceled due to weather conditions after several years of absence

CHICAGO Chicago’s Venetian Parade was canceled due to bad weather after a scheduled return after a few years of absence.

For years, the event took place on Lake Michigan itself, but the event moved to the Chicago River this year, and organizers say it has been several years since the event took place.

The event was scheduled for 2016 but was also canceled due to lack of participants.

“I am honored to be here with the Italian community, raising millions to help organizations and support,” said Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White.

The boats are usually decorated by the masters for an illuminated parade along the water, culminating in fireworks at Navy Pier.

Funds from the event will go to the Italian-American Human Relations Foundation.

Trevian Kutti, a member of the foundation, said: “Children in Milan were sent to learn music to be part of their arts program.
