I went down to Cincinnati Ohio weekend before last to a festival called `Tall Stacks', it was a big festival of riverboats, I did post one picture in the Photo Gallery, but I did have to shrink it a whole lot to fit in the screen any at all. I took about 40 pictures at the festival, and up river at Maysville Kentucky, got some nice pics of murals on their floodwall there, and pics of regular, working river boats.

What a great place to be!!
And looks like the weather was awsome!
Nice picture also.

I went for a creole buffet in one of those steamboats in New Orleans. It was in January so the weather was not the best, for my taste anyway.

Look, I found a website for what I believe is the festival you're telling us about..

A friend of mine had his latin band playing at the festival.

I always wanted to ride on one, but all the ones close by are into casino operations now.

There are money stealing boats on down river a few miles, but I have never been on any of them Ron, I am going down to Cincinnati again Thanksgiving weekend, going to try and take a dinner cruise on one of the paddle wheelers then, and get some more pictures.
