    Default Yes, but technically no...

    I'll be over there, except I'll be at the Howard Museum in Jeffersonville helping out, so I don't know how much I'll be at the Louisville wharf. There will be many people there who have posted in the past, but as you may see, there isn't a lot of posting on here anymore. I hope you can join us at the Howard at some point, especially on Saturday afternoon at 3 when Doc Hawley will be the River Ramblings speaker. He'll talk about his days on the tramp steamer AVALON (and most anything else someone asks). Then on Sunday at 3 the double team of David and Jonathan Tschiggfrie will present their epic history of the IDLEWILD/AVALON/BELLE, which they gave several years ago, but which has been revised and embellished. Both events take place at the Howard Steamboat Museum in Jeffersonville (just across the 2nd Street bridge and down Spring St. from the Louisville landing) in the Carriage House at 3 PM EDT. Admission is $5, which helps support the Little Museum that Can... and Does!

    Default "The Voice of the River"

    Since rumor has it that the BELLE's calliope is going to be silenced, save for the race, because it will interfere with the land music, does this mean the calliope barge music will not happen either? Sounds a lot like the evolution of Tall Stacks to the land-based stuff instead of the boats....and more of a Bourbon festival rather than a BELLE Bash....

  8. Default Things aren't working out here :-(

    Due to circumstances beyond my control, my trip to Louisville has to be canceled. Needless to say I'm very upset by it, but certain things must take precedence. I hope that those of you that do attend will post plenty of pictures of the festivities on here so that those of us who can't go will at least get a glimpse of the happenings.

    Who (Keith, Travis???) can tell me about parking for the big event? I looked at the Festival of Riverboats site but see nothing about parking...

    Default Parking

    There is parking around Joe's Crab Shack, though that's just normal parking. I would tell you more but I'm not as familiar with the area as others.
