Thank you to this community for supporting our 39th Annual Color Cruise and Island Festival October 12th-14th.
From our sponsors, demonstrators, vendors, entertainers, community partners and volunteers we could not have done it without you!
We had a record turnout from Friday through Sunday.
Close to 700 students along with more than 400 of their parents converged on Island Park Friday. Each day more than 300 people rode the horse-drawn carriage rides, the Grand Princess took more than 1000 people on a riverboat ride each day and the entrance gate saw around 10,000 pass through during the course of the 3-day festival.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for event photos.
Mark your calendar for the 2nd weekend in October 2019 as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Color Cruise and Island Festival!
Special thanks to this year's generous Color Cruise sponsors!
