Boats are now allowed at Riverfest, Coast Guard says

The U.S. Coast Guard said they are now allowing boats at Riverfest, according to Lt. Nicholas Olmstead.

Earlier this week, the Coast Guard said due to Ohio River concerns boats would not be allowed to tie up or anchor to watch the Western & Southern/WEBN Fireworks.

However, Olmstead said they met with local, state and federal partners Friday morning after receiving the updated river forecast and reversed their decision.

The safety zone for boat tie-ups has been revised.

The zone will allow for boats to utilize the traditional anchorages of Riverfest.

The National Weather Service in Wilmington said Friday morning the river, which stands at 33.2 feet now, is expected to crest at 34.5 feet overnight Friday into Saturday and then fall through the weekend.
