Five DailyNews readers each received entry for two to a screening of Boblo Boats: A Detroit Ferry Tale on Friday, Feb. 10, at the Capitol Theatre, sponsored by the University of Windsor Alumni Association.
Jannah Jessop, Karl Jirgens, Susan McKee, Abigail Morris, and Tianyi Yang had their entries drawn from all those which correctly identified birch trees as the source of the name of Bois Blanc Island, the Columbia and Ste. Clair as the steamboat ferries, and 1993 as the amusement park’s final year of operation.
The film explores the complicated history of Boblo Island Amusement Park and its iconic ferries. Friday’s screening begins at 7 p.m. at 121 University Ave. W. Tickets are available for purchase on the Windsor International Film Festival website.
