Soak up all that summer has to offer on this brand new experience – The Floating Fiesta: A St. Croix River Dinner, Drinks and Dancing Cruise!  We’ve partnered up with Stillwater River Boats, Lift Bridge Brewing Company, and Dance and Entertainment Studies of Stillwater to help bring this vibrant, summer celebration to life.  During this outing, you’ll be treated to a 3-hour dinner cruise featuring specialty drinks, live entertainment, dinner, dancing, and more!

Our event will begin in the “Birthplace of Minnesota”, where your Local Gurus will be awaiting your arrival on the Stillwater River Boats docks.  After check-in, you’ll be welcomed aboard our private vessel for the evening, the Majestic Star, a 4 level super yacht which features a comfortable lounge, a dining level, a dance and entertainment deck and a top sun deck.  As you board you’ll be serenaded by Mariachi Alma De Mexico a local mariachi group, who’ll help set the tone for our Floating Fiesta!

Once you find your sea legs, you’ll be invited to order up a craft beer, house margarita, house wine, or a rail drink to help you combat those dog days of summer and enjoy yourself.  Just for this event, we’ve partnered up with local legend Lift Bridge Brewing Company, who’s arranged to have a collection of their flavorful beers onboard just for us!  Their line-up will include Farm Girl, Mango Blonde, Hop Dish IPA, Juice-Z NE IPA, Fireside Flannel, Northwoods Juice Box Hard Seltzer, and the very appropriate Blue Agave Margarita Seltzer.  If beer isn’t your thing – no worries!  The yacht’s bar is fully stocked with margaritas, wine, cocktails, and non-alcoholic options for you to enjoy.   As a perfect pairing to our beverages, we’ll enjoy a flavorful empanada as our appetizer as we set sail onto the scenic St. Croix River.

As we make our way down river, the Tropical Zone Orchestra will heat things up with their wildly entertaining music, sure to get you on the dance floor (or at very least tap your feet).  This award winning Latin fusion band is based out of the Twin Cities and for over a decade has brought together musicians from Puerto Rico and Minnesota to create some of the best Salsa and Merengue fusion music in Minnesota!  After the first musical set, we will welcome two instructors from Stillwater’s own Dance and Entertainment Studios to do a “mini” dance lesson to help encourage you to get out on the open aired dance floor.

As our live entertainment struts their stuff on the 3rd floor, we will open up the dinner buffet in the air conditioned 2nd floor.  In true Fiesta style, dinner will feature both beef and chorizo/ chicken tacos, fresh guacamole, queso, chips, rice, and beans.   You’ll be invited to enjoy your dinner anywhere you feel comfortable, as you take in the beautiful scenery of the St. Croix River and enjoy the festive music from our on-board entertainment.

The rest of the night is yours to enjoy as you see fit – dance the night away and show off your fancy new footwork, play some games and have a chance to win some Lift Bridge Brewing prizes down in the lounge, order up another round of cervezas and tap your foot from the sidelines, or take in the sunset from the open aired rooftop.  No matter how you choose to spend this evening, we’re sure you’ll head home with memories as vibrant as the music, food, and drinks we enjoyed on this one-of-a-kind Floating Fiesta.
