American Queen one of 3 ships that stop off at Burlington for the tourists each year.
This beautiful water fountain graces the riverfront, and is the area that the "Fun Fest Bathtub races" will be on July 28th
This is a recreation of the Statue of Liberty that was placed on the riverfront "MISSISSIPPI". and in the background you see the bridge that goes from Iowa to Illinois.
This is a building down town that someone has cleaverly painted windows on and Saloon Ladys and looks real until you get right up to it.
DANKWARDT PARK These two parks will be the scene of the "Fun Fest Walk" the end of July.
TALL SHIPS AT SARNIA ONTARIO
This jolly old cryer would advertise what all was going on the different ships 5 of them in port that day.
These "Pirates" would entertain the people abourd the ships while the tourists were on.
This rowboat would go out and check the depth of the water for the ships (before they got new navigational tools) so they were demonstrating onhow it was done.
