Rockford Park District invites the public to take a relaxing and interesting lunch break on a Forest City Queen Grab ’N’ Go Friday lunch cruise.
Thirty-minute cruises depart from Riverview Park’s Riverview Ice House dock, 324 N. Madison St., near downtown Rockford, every Friday through Aug. 30 at 11:30 a.m., 12:15 p.m., and 1 p.m. (river conditions permitting).
Lunch options are a hot dog, hamburger or cheeseburger, and include chips, a cookie and one soda or water, or upgrade to a grilled chicken sandwich for $1 additional.
Prices are: adults, $10 ($10.50 non-resident); ages 5-17, $9.50 ($10 non-resident); and ages 4 and younger, $7. No reservations are required — first come, first served.
For information about accessibility for passengers with disabilities, call (815) 987-8800. Purchase ride tickets at the Trolley Station in Riverview Park no later than 15 minutes prior to departure time, or purchase tickets online at www.rockfordparkdistrict.org/fcqtrolley, where more information about the Forest City Queen, including hourly excursion rides, other meal cruises, and private rentals, is also available.
