Join us aboard the Jonathan Padelford for this special River City Revue, Mississippi Messersmith! Local indie-pop musician Jeremy Messersmith will be providing the tunes as we explore the history of riverboat gaming on the river. Storytelling troupe Word Sprout will be joining us again and talking about the history of poker in the U.S., and the role of the Mississippi River in its spread.
Round up your friends for an evening cruise down the Mississippi River! Learn about the history of gaming on the river, grab a deck of cards and get your own game going, or head up to the deck to just hang out while enjoying a Mississippi Messersmith signature cocktail!
Tickets to River City Revue are $15, or $10 for members of Mississippi Park Connection. Learn more about the benefits of membership and how you can support your national park.
