Vicksburg’s riverfront had plenty of company Thursday

Published 10:23 am Friday, April 9, 2021

Vicksburg’s riverfront was quite full Thursday, as two riverboats — the American Jazz and the American Countess — were docked behind the Old Depot Museum.

Since riverboats resumed cruises along the Mississippi River in mid-March, Thursday marked the first time Vicksburg has had two riverboats docked on the same day.

The America was in Vicksburg Friday, while three more riverboat dockings are planned for next week.
