Being a special events photographer means being in the middle of celebrations and people having a fun time! This past week the I had the privilege of spending happy hour aboard the Pride of Susquehanna with my beer loving boyfriend and a bunch of strangers (who I can now call friends!). This sold out annual event was put together by Sara Bozich, who is a freelance writer for a variety of publications including the Patriot News. From sushi dinners to happy hours, Sara is great at putting on fun parties!
Before we began our 2-hour cruise aboard the Pride, the event started with an hour long pre-party on the Overlook deck. Booze cruisers did not enter the party empty handed though! Every reveler was greeted with a swag bag full of fun things - sunglasses, cookies, a Wegman's snack bar, pretzels, coupons to local restaurants like Mezza Cafe, a bottle of water provided by Arooga's, and so much more. With adult beverages provided by The Vineyard at Hershey, Keystone State Wine & Spirits, and Victory, there was something for every palate. While party goers noshed on snacks provided by Arooga's and chocolate samples by Macris Chocolates, Pepka surprised and wowed the crowd with his masterful skills at sleight of hand.
After eating and drinking to our heart's desires, we boarded the Pride ready to continue the celebrations! As we boarded our vessel, we were greeted with leis from Sara and the island-y tunes provided by DJ Geoffro. This really set the tone for the rest of the night. For the next 2 hours we cruised up and down the Susquehanna River enjoying the sights and sounds of the river. Even though it was a little cool on the river, that didn't seem to bother any of my fellow cruisers. If you're ever wondering if this is a fun event, check out the pictures from the event and even better yet, come out and join us on the next one!
Thanks to Sara Bozich for putting this together and I'm looking forward to the next one! Welcome to our cruise!
