OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma river ferry service will launch the 2014 season with a preview party in May.

Oklahoma River Cruises will host a preview party from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on May 3 at the Regatta Park Landing, located at 701 S. Lincoln Boulevard. Admission to the preview party is free and open to the public.

"We're entering our seventh season of cruises on the river and although we've had countless return cruisers, we know that many Oklahomans have yet to experience the scenic seven-mile stretch of the Oklahoma River aboard one of our climate controlled cruisers," said River Transit Manager, Jeanne Smith. "Our season preview party is the perfect time for potential passengers to learn more about our public and private cruises, as well as the many themed-cruises that are offered throughout the year."

The preview party will feature live music from 100 Bones, the Okie Dokie band and musicians from the Academy of Music at the University of Central Oklahoma. Guests will be able to participate in activities including local wine and several food vendors, a basketball shooting game and a painting activity. T-shirt and ferry pass prizes will be given throughout the event. Those interested in testing the cruise waters can purchase a mini cruise at the event for $6.

Historical re-enactors from the Oklahoma History Center will be on hand in period costumes to highlight the History Comes Alive themed-cruises. Other upcoming specialty cruises include the Mother's Day Dessert cruise, Big Band and Western Waters cruises. Friday evening sunset cruises start mid-May.
