Belle of Louisville planning 6-day centennial celebration

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - When the Belle of Louisville marks its 100-year anniversary, it will be a celebration like no other, according to the Waterfront Development Corporation.

Six riverboats will take part in the six-day Centennial Festival of Riverboats. The celebration will include food, bourbon, music, and art along Waterfront Park.

David Karem with the Waterfront Development Corporation says it's a historic moment worth celebrating.

He said, "These riverboats lasted generally three to five years, so to have the Belle of Louisville -- come Oct. 18 -- for 100 years is an unbelievable statement."

The celebration was scaled back because of recent budget cuts.
