Louisville will be awash in the big boats on the Ohio River Oct. 14-19 with its Centennial Festival of Riverboats, which is celebrating the 100th birthday of the Belle of Louisville. It's touted as the oldest operating Mississippi River-style steamboat. There'll be five historic riverboats present during most of the festival (six on Oct. 18), and the special events include races.
