The Centennial Festival of Riverboats is coming to Waterfront Park in downtown Louisville October 14-19, 2014. Belle’s Big Bash will be celebrated on October 18, the day she turns 100 years old.
The Belle of Louisville is 100 years young this October, and according to those close to her, has another 100 years to go.
The Belle of Louisville first starting rolling downriver out of Pittsburgh, PA in 1914. She has lived three “lives”, as the Idlewild, the Avalon, and as we currently know her, the Belle of Louisville.
What a spectacular feat for the Belle of Louisville, and for the city of Louisville to host this huge 100th birthday celebration.
