Candy is dandy but drag and dancing is fancy! This isn’t exactly what Shirley Temple had in mind and we aren’t exactly on the sunny beaches of the Peppermint Bay, but hey, it’ll do. Come and join CNKY Scene and BB Riverboats for the first annual Big Ship Lollipop for some of the best entertainment the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky has to offer
. The first deck will host the glamorous Penny Tration and her cast of entertainers with over-the-top drag performances. Dance and mingle on the second deck with music provided by DJ Patrick B of Adonis the nightclub. If the first two decks aren’t what you’re looking for, head up to third deck VIP section (21+), which includes an open bar and hors d’oeuvres. Boarding begins at 10:30 p.m. Boat departs at 11:30 p.m. $15-50. Friday, May 18. 101 Riverboat Row, Newport. 859-261-8500. For more information visit bbriverboats.com.
