Our Mighty Mississippi
Climb aboard the beautiful Minnesota Centennial Showboat theater for a floating Mighty Mississippi-themed stage show with baritone and storyteller Steven Marking. Born and raised on the Mississippi's backwaters, Marking presents a sensory feast of song, stories, film and photos capturing its life and times. Guiding you down a narrative of rollicking twists and turns, he'll perform songs such as "Ol' Man River" and Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water," expound on the Mississippi's history and biology, and share his stunning photography and videography capturing images ranging from baby wood ducks leaping from their nests to tributaries in bloom. The Mississippi River is a character in itself -- here's your chance to get to know her a whole lot better.
