Windsor, Ontario (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
If you think you know the story of prohibition, think again.
Mark Baker, owner of Encore Productions of Windsor, is proud to announce the start of the fourth season of The Rum Runners Tour. The live action bus tour uses a cast of eight costumed actors and musicians, who tell the story of prohibition and bootlegging in Windsor Ontario and Detroit Michigan during the Roaring 20’s. This unique five-hour tour, which takes the form of a traveling play, has quickly grown in popularity and in partnership with Tourism Windsor Essex and the Ontario Motor Coach Association, now draws customers from Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois and throughout Southern Ontario. While educational and filled with historical detail, the passengers are also treated to laughter, music, good food and a whisky tasting.
The current popularity of The Roaring Twenties, with all its glamour and excitement focuses on Chicago and Atlantic City as the places where all the action was. The Rum Runners Tour though, tells the story of Windsor’s connection to Chicago gangsters like Al Capone and Detroit’s Purple Gang and how they relied on what was then known as the Windsor Detroit funnel, for their main supply route. So, if you think you know the story of prohibition…Think Again!
"The fourth season of the Rum Runners Tour is fast approaching with great anticipation as it has quickly grown into a world class attraction. The cast and crew will delight as you get a tour through legendary venues with a live flair! The Rum Runners Tour is an incredible story that you are sure to enjoy!"
