She may be the oldest operating Mississippi-style steamboat in the world but she is still the Belle of the ball.    Belle's Big Birthday Bash is the featured event of Louisville's Centennial Festival of Riverboats.   We'll join in the celebration, along with a fleet of renowned riverboats from around the country, at the downtown Louisville Wharf and enjoy a great lunch on board the guest of honor.  But that's not all, we'll also dine on the banks of the mighty Ohio River and be treated to laughter, mystery, music and dance at the Derby Dinner Playhouse.   We'll take a tour back to the Great Steamboat Era and cross the river to a territory of fossilized remains found in the Devonian Seas.   And we can't leave without touring the unique Schimpff's Confectionary & Museum or the legendary Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.  A party like this will only happen once, so don't miss your opportunity to attend.
