LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The Centennial Festival of Riverboats is full-steam ahead this fall as Louisville Gas and Electric has stepped up as a presenting sponsor.

The Waterfront Development Corporation and Mayor Greg Fischer made the announcement this morning.

Due to recent budget changes, a portion of the event was in jeopardy, but will only experience adjustments now. It will focus on a more community-based celebration with emphasis on the Belle of Louisville's 100th birthday.

The event will be filled with six days of cruises on the Belle and land-based activities like music, food and bourbon all along Waterfront Park.

The Centennial Festival of Riverboats will occur on October 14 through 19.
