River City Revue: Exploring the “Dark Side” of the Mississippi
Rivers have always been “marginal” places, serving as the borders of states and regions, as the way in which, historically, “new” ideas and influences came into the towns along their banks. There are many good reasons why “river town” has often conjured up synonyms such as “rowdy” or “dangerous.”
Now we can add “filthy” “debaucherous” and “unseemly” to the mix–what fun! (Although I did have to look that second one up.)
The Mississippi River Fund caps a summer of innovative programming with “River City Revue: Filth on the River” riverboat trip on the evening of Wednesday, September 10. The boat leaves Harriet Island in St. Paul at 7:00. Look here for tickets and more details.
See you on the boat!
