Event Details

Cast Off Party! (Check-in) – each night is held from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on the river level under the International Building at 203 S. St. Mary’s at Market St.

Beautifully decorated boats carrying 12-20 passengers each will float along the river making multiple stops during their journey.
