The Schwiebert Riverfront Park Boat Docks will be open for boaters to enjoy...

     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 boat docks.
