Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat Gets Makeover

The Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat is celebrating its 37th season and it has a new look.

Newswatch 16’s Ryan Leckey hopped onboard the vessel in the Williamsport on Thursday.

He highlighted the more than $30,000 dollars in renovations the boat went through this winter.

There’s a new bar area, new floor and much more.

Ryan also spotlighted the new specialty cruises, including "educational floating classrooms," planned on the Hiawatha for this season now through October.
