The Schwiebert Riverfront Park Boat Docks will be open for
boaters to enjoy during this year’s 2018 Red White and Boom event held in
Downtown Rock Island on Tuesday, July 3rd. The docks, with 23
slips, will be available on a first
come-first serve basis and no reservations for slips will be
taken. The docks will
close at 8:45pm for the
fireworks show, and boats will not be able to enter or leave the docks until after the fireworks show has finished.
There will be a river closure around the firework barges from 6:00
pm to 10:30 pm. For those intending
to watch the fireworks spectacle from the Mississippi River in a boat, please
follow all directions on event day from official boats including the United
States Coast Guard and local law enforcement agencies. Boaters can be
stationed up Sylvan Slough or on the far side of the Centennial Bridge parallel
to Davenport's Centennial Park to view the show from the River.
We encourage boaters to come into the park and
enjoy the live music, food, and family fun. All people that arrive
by boat and would like to enjoy the event, will be given a wrist band. This
wrist band will allow the person to re-access the docks to get back on their
boat. Extra wrist bands will not be given out to the public to access the
