Warm memories are made in Marietta, Ohio, home of the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival

One by one, from up river and down, the sternwheelers arrive in Marietta, Ohio, home of the American Sternwheel Association. They come to The Riverboat Town, to have some good ol’ fashioned fun at the event of the year – the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival!
