When: 2:30-6 p.m. Sunday, August 17th
Where: Kon-Tiki-O Party Barge, River City Star, 151 Freedom Park Road, Omaha
When I look at the photo of the Kon-Tiki-O Party Barge I instantly think of Gilligan's Island. And that's just plain awesome.
The best part is that this famed riverboat, which used to venture out onto the Missouri River for three-hour tours, is now permanently docked at the River City Star landing downtown. So you don't have to worry about being stranded on an uncharted desert isle with Gilligan.
On Sunday (August 17th), the Blues Society of Omaha is hosting a "Back to the River Party" on the Kon-Tiki-O with live music by the Sean Chambers Band, Dan Treanor's Afrosippi Band and the Honeyboy Turner Band.
Cocktails and food will be flowing along with the blues on the 72-foot boat with four decks, one of which is enclosed and temperature controlled.
Best of all...you'll be able to say, "I'm on a BOAT!" (Cue the music)
