July 16 and 17, 2022: Centennial Marina Days
Join us at the Longbranch Marina to celebrate the LIC’s place in history of the South KP. Multiple events are planned to enjoy, music, food, and family-fun activities. The LIC is bringing the Virginia V steamer, “an icon of maritime history”, to the marina.
On Saturday, July 16th the Virginia V will cruise from Foss Warf in Tacoma to the Longbranch Marina, and you can be aboard! You will start at the LIC at 8:30am, board a charter bus to Foss Warf where you will get on the Virginia V and cruise to the Longbranch Marina, arriving back at 1:30pm. The cost is $125 and includes a box lunch and shuttle service.
On Saturday, July 16th, afternoon starting at 2:00pm the 100 year old Virginia V Passenger Ferry will be tied up at the Longbranch Marina and tours will be available. You can park and then purchase a $5 tour ticket at the LIC and be shuttled to and from the marina. Tours will be about the historical significance of the PNW Mosquito Fleet Ferry Service when there were no roads and this boat in particular. At the LIC Clubhouse there will be a historical display and refreshments will be available for purchase. It’s family friendly, so bring the kids!
In the evening of the 16th, we will be hosting a Step Back in Time Party on the Virginia V. The cost of this event is $75 per person and includes a shuttle to and from the LIC, appetizers and live music aboard the Virginia V. There will also be a cash bar.
