This year we have a unique opportunity to enjoy our holiday celebration cruising on The Spirit of 76. In tradition with our previous holiday parties please wear formal attire (cocktail/long dresses, tux/suits and ties, etc., designer jeans do not count) but remember The Spirit of 76 is a retired ferryboat so no carpeting or plush seating is available. Please make appropriate choices in foot wear.
The deal we brokered is as follows: BYOB as many as you like to drink and/or share. Yes, it is a potluck event so your scrumptious dishes and desserts are on the menu. Finger foods are convenient dishes for a boat in motion. This is the holiday season if you don’t prepare food there are ample choices at the local grocery store, please be mindful and don’t count on others to bring enough for everyone.
Music will be provided, the happy go lucky people we are, we will break the record on how many people can fit on the dance floor at one time (anyone has connections to the Guinness book of records ha-ha just kidding).
Our Organizers will send a request to Santa for a special appearance; HE showed up last year and boy did he have a great time. So you better be naughty (oohhps) I mean good because Santa Claus is …….
Cost: $30.00 Payment required at time of RSVP NO REFUNDS SEE PAY PAL FOR DETAILS.
Parking: Public parking will be available at the Republic Parking lot south of the Dock Building at 535 Dock Street (we have been instructed not to park at the Foss Waterway Seaport small parking lot they have an event and will tow cars)
Board the Boat from 6:30pm – 7:00pm (Foss Waterway Seaport, 705 Dock Street)
Cruise local waterways from 7:00pm – 9:30pm
Disembark at Foss Waterway Seaport from: 9:30pm – 10:00pm. Optional after party at Rock the Dock located next to Foss Waterway Seaport.
BOAT DETAILS: The boat has two levels, the main level is fully enclosed the second level is 3/4 enclosed and has the Stern (back) of the boat open. This does two things for us. If it is nice we get to see the stars, and it also allows folks to be up top and cool off a little. We have access to a bar, refrigerator and coolers. Tables will be set up for the potluck, seating will be up and downstairs. There is plenty of opportunity for us to mingle and move around the boat.
