Jordan Garland has a dream to put a half-pipe on the Detroit Princess riverboat. Apparently, a lot of other people want to see that dream become a reality because the event has now been rescheduled to accommodate more passengers.

"Due to the crazy response for the event, the boat offered us to switch dates," says Garland, who heads up the production company AsDetroitsOwn. The date has now been rescheduled from Sunday, July 29 to Sunday, Aug. 5. This allows for two cruises: a family-friendly afternoon cruise and an adult evening cruise. The afternoon cruise takes off from noon to 2:30 p.m., while the evening cruise goes from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.



The "Cruise for Culture" will take passengers down the Detroit River while skateboarders and BMX riders perform on the half-pipe constructed on the Princess' deck. The cruise will also include an art exhibit featuring more than 10 local visual artists.

Tickets are $25 and available here. A preview video, complete with a mocked-up half-pipe, is below.
