Great River Harbor has dinner, games, raffles and a huge silent auction after the houseboat cruises. They will be serving food like chicken dinners, brats, and hamburgers with all proceeds going to the Gilbert Brown Foundation. Plan to grab some dinner at their full bar & grill. This event is held in a campground with a bar – many find this cruise is appropriate for children.
