Default Belle Centennial has New Name

A communique from the office of the mayor of Louisville came to my desk last week concerning the Belle's birthday party next year. The festival has a new name and a somewhat different direction, now being touted as the CENTENNIAL FESTIVAL OF RIVERBOATS - featuring Food - Bourbon - Music - Art.

The listing for events:

Tuesday - October 14 - Opening Ceremony
Wednesday - October 15 - Bourbon Pavilion Opening Day
Thursday - October 16 - Boat Races
Friday - October 17 - Belle's Balloon Glow
Saturday - October 18 - Belle's 100th Birthday Party - river parade, music and fireworks
Sunday - October 19 - Boat Race Awards Ceremony

For tickets and information:

The Howard Steamboat Museum & Mansion will observe the centennial celebration with a special exhibit of the Belle's colorful history. Plans for several programs and events are in the works but no definite dates have been set as arrangements are incomplete at this time. Information will be posted as details become available. Stay tuned!
