This will be our second picnic of the year. Everyone seemed to enjoy our picnics by the river last year, so I thought we would have lunch at Mississippi Mudd's and then sit down by the river under a tree and relax and chat and maybe have some ice cream! Don't forget to bring your chairs!

This is the actual date for the cruise. COST: General Admission: $25 Explorer Pass Admission: $20 To buy tickets go to: https://explorebuffalo.org/boat/prohibition-crui... Prohibition was a busy time for Buffalo's waterfront. With legal alcohol available just across the Niagara River in Canada, a short boat trip across the border could bring alcohol into Buffalo. In the way of that short trip were an increasing number of patrol boats on the lookout for smugglers. Join us for a cruise aboard the Miss Buffalo II and listen to stories of rum running and smuggling and enjoy the scenic views of Buffalo’s waterfront. To complete the Prohibition Cruise experience, and celebrate the return of local distilleries, a local distillery will provide samples on each cruise. Tour Details: Space is limited and reservations are required! Please arrive at least 20 minutes before the tour start time – the Miss Buffalo will leave the dock promptly at the start time. Late arrivals will miss the boat! This tour is two hours in length. Explore Buffalo will contact you if this tour is cancelled due to weather. All food and beverages must be obtained through Buffalo Harbor Cruises. Cameras are encouraged!
