MotorCities National Heritage Area to host exclusive boat tour on the Detroit River

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Friends and supporters of the MotorCities National Heritage Area Partnership will gather once again to celebrate the Detroit River's impact on automotive and labor history at the 2nd annual Motor Boats & Motor Cars event. It's is set for July 19, 2017, with festivities beginning at 5 p.m. at The Rattlesnake Club, 300 River Place in Detroit.

After dining on heavy hors d'oeuvres, guests will make their way to Stroh's River Place dock to board the Diamond Belle ferry boat for a unique tour offered exclusively by MotorCities. This year, the tour will be heading farther south to highlight historical sites that tell the story of organized auto labor in the city and beyond.

In addition to food and festivities at The Rattlesnake Club, guests can take a ride in one of several classic cars that will be on display, while gazing at the historic boats stationed by the river.
