Tuscaloosa – On Thursday, June 15 from 6-9 P.M., Black Warrior Riverkeeper will celebrate 15 years of clean water advocacy with the event “Cruisin’ on the River.” The Black Warrior River sunset cruise will feature live music, dinner and local beer on the iconic Bama Belle Riverboat, which docks by the Tuscaloosa Riverwalk at 1 Greensboro Ave.

Event proceeds support Black Warrior Riverkeeper’s efforts to protect the Black Warrior River watershed including Lake Tuscaloosa, a reservoir on the North River that provides drinking water to 200,000 people.

Henri’s Notions will perform throughout the cruise. From soft fingerpicked ballads to hard-driving jigs and reels, the group creates a musical mix of traditional Celtic and American music. Henri’s Notions has appeared with such folk icons as Bob Dylan, Richie Havens, The Kingston Trio and David Grisman Quintet.

Tickets are on sale now at blackwarrior15.eventbrite.com. Tickets are $40 per person. Admission includes dinner (with meat, seafood, and vegetarian options) catered by The Levee, and  a complimentary sampling of local beers by Druid City Brewing.

The event is for ages 21 and up. Children under the age of 12 may attend with parent or guardian but will need a ticket as space is limited to 100 guests.

Boarding begins at 6 P.M. The boat will leave at 6:30 P.M. sharp and will return at 9 P.M.
