Once again, friends and supporters of the MotorCities National Heritage Area Partnership will gather to celebrate the Detroit River's impact on automotive and labor history. 

Their second annual Motor Boats & Motor Cars event is set for July 19, 2017, with festivities beginning at 5 p.m. at The Rattlesnake Club. It's located at 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.
