EVENTWIRE — Parkway is celebrating the return of a small boat, Po-boys, with a viewing party on the patio with jambalaya and Dixie beer this Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. The boat, once considered lost during Katrina, actually saved about 30 people during the storm. Mid City resident Pete Becnel captured video of residents using the boat to rescue those trapped by the rising water during Katrina and he gave a copy to Parkway chef and owner Justin Kennedy five years later. After years of work, the boat is fully restored. [MID CITY MESSENGER]
