Historical River Cruise aboard the Island Pearl, Two hour trips leave from Pier 22, 1200 First Avenue West, Bradenton, at 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM. They will be narrated by local historian, Cathy Slusser, who will tell stories of the river’s history and the people who lived along its banks. The cruise will be aboard the Island Pearl, an ex-US Navy "Liberty Launch" originally built in 1991 by Willard Marine in California for the carrier USS ESSEX. In 2004, the Island Pearl was completely converted into an elegant launch style vessel. The Island Pearl only seats 49 people so purchase tickets in advance. Ticket prices are $30 each with a portion going to Manatee County Historical Resources. For reservations, call 941-780-8010.

 

From March 1-31, 2013, the thirty-fourth annual Heritage Days celebration will focus on our county’s history. All month long, historical sites and organizations throughout our county will celebrate our community’s heritage by providing opportunities for our area’s residents and visitors to experience the past. Reenactments, special exhibits, lectures, open houses and family programming will highlight the month’s events.

 

For thirty-four years, the Manatee Heritage Association has sponsored Heritage Days. Originally a week in length, Heritage Days grew to nine days, and in 1995, Manatee Heritage Days expanded to a month long event. The activities are as varied as walking tours and concerts. Events take place throughout Manatee County in many different communities. Through these events at area historical sites, participants will experience the pioneer lifestyle and learn how Manatee County has grown and developed.
