It’s the beginning of what’s being called the re-birth and rejuvenation of the Bagnell Dam Strip. KRMS staff and 150 of the radio station’s sponsors set sail Wednesday evening on the inaugural cruise of the Celebration-2 Cruise Ship at the Lake of the Ozarks. Celebration owner Captain Joe Harvey says the new boat put in plenty of miles after starting its journey in Chicago.
From there, the two-part vessel was assembled and put together for the cruise. Among local dignitaries on hand for the pre-sail christening…Lake Ozark Mayor Johnny Franzeskos who says it’s an exciting time for the city.
The Celebration-2 is moored near Bagnell Dam while the original Celebration remains moored in its location near the Grand Glaize bridges.
