Today, April 30, on the steamboat race day, there will be a Save the Delta Queen Campaign rally starting at 1:00 p.m. on the waterfront in Louisville, just downriver from Joe’s Crab Shack. We need all the supporter’s we can gather to show the world that we really do love the Delta Queen.

    We have crusied overnight on the Delta Queen three times knowing full well she was a wooden boat-that’s exactly WHY we did it! For the historical and delightful experience. It was wonderful. Keep up the work- we have written our congressman and senators.Thanks
