At this point, the Forest City Queen riverboat is not going to operate in 2018 unless we can raise enough funds. Our fundraising goal is $22,000 to make the much needed repairs and to cover operational costs for a modified summer season. This would continue to give our community the chance to take a unique and affordable boat trip cruising along the river enjoying the scenic riverfront during the summer of 2018. Please donate to keep the Queen in the river!
Fundraising Deadline: JUNE 1, 2018
