TELL CITY - Looking for a quick getaway during this year's sesquicentennial and Schweizer Fest? Look no further than the Ohio River and the Spirit of Jefferson. A number of tickets for the 2 to 4 p.m. Aug. 8 cruise aboard the passenger boat are available for $25 each.

The cruise includes hors d'oeuvres, live music and a raffle for a cruise on the Belle of Louisville.

Some tickets remain available for Saturday's cruises - Friday evening's dinner excursion is sold out - but Friday's trip offers the best chance for groups of several people to venture onto the river for a relaxing getaway.

Tickets for Friday's happy-hour cruise, as well as Saturday's three cruises, can be purchased at Taylor Tours, 645 Main St., on the second floor of First State Bank, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by calling 547-2923 or (800) 258-9070.

The visit to Tell City by the Spirit of Jefferson is sponsored by Guy Neil and LaVerne Ramsey.
