250-Celebration-logo

As part of the Town of Shelburne’s celebration of the 250th Anniversary of the signing of its Charter, all community members are invited to participate in a “Cruise into Shelburne’s History” on Friday evening Aug. 16.  The use and operation of the ferry M/V Champlain is generously being made available to the town by the Pecor and Gobeille families.

The excursion will take place from 6:30 to 8 pm, leaving from the King Street Ferry Dock rain or shine, and cruising the historic Shelburne shoreline. On board on the lower deck will be surprise guest storytellers, a fascinating display of images from earlier times, snacks donated by Shelburne restaurateurs, and a cash bar.  The upper deck is open for those who simply want to take in the fresh air and enjoy the view. The lower deck is handicap accessible.

Tickets are $5 for children 12 and under and $10 for adults.  Tickets, which are limited to 300, will go on sale on a date to be publicly announced in the Shelburne News.
