Sweet! I heard there will be approximately 70 riverboat cruises per day. Those, with additional viewing traffic, will make for a tricky day in the downtown area in that ride!

No.........:rolleyes:

Big celebration in Cincinnati where a ton of Riverboats from the mid-west meet in Cincinnati on the Ohio River. It's a race, a big party, and from what I hear, a lot of fun. They have it every 3 years, this is my first one. They say their will be over 1 million people to attend the event this year.

Skiing??? So you could laugh hysterically at me??? I wish I could have made it, even if it would have been a 'site' to see. :D

I have never been to a Tall Stacks before. After reading these posts, I'm kinda bummed we won't make if for any of the night activities.

The X-star had OH reg #'s.

You are right about the draft on some of the riverboats (and even some tugs).

Kinda neat thing...when the Mississippi Queen was passing by, many of the other riverboats signaled by sounding their horns.

Good music. Good weather. Good food. Pretty cool experience overall.

Great pics Phat! Our party Friday night was a blast! Talk about CURRENT!! The river had rapids downtown Friday night!! I had to do a double take but I saw a Open bow Sportstar out there that was Blue and white fighting the water. That guy has bigger cajones than I to take his MC out there in that current!!

I've been freaked-out enough by some barge rollers that I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere near what was going on yesterday (boat traffic, current, wakes, etc...). I did see a few closed bow ski boats bobbing around down there yesterday.

The current was moving pretty decent yesterday, so I couldn't imagine Friday! I think you could have wakesurfed some of the (true riverboat) rollers coming off those paddlewheels.
