Moonlight Paddleboat Picnics

Thursdays – June 1, 2017 through September 28, 2017

Romance returns to Forest Park in June with the start of a new season of Thursday night Moonlight Paddleboat Picnics. Embark on a “love boat” around Post-Dispatch Lake while enjoying a picnic for two under the twinkling stars. Each paddleboat is furnished with a picnic basket filled with a delicious dinner including 2 wraps or sandwiches; an appetizer plate to share with hummus, olives, cheese, fruit and croustini; and a sampling of mini desserts to finish on a sweet note! Purchase a bottle of wine or bucket of beer for your date. Boats launch at 7:00 p.m. every Thursday and must be back by 9:00 p.m. This fun event sells out quickly, so reserve your boat today!
