PADUCAH — The American Queen made a stop in Paducah this afternoon. The steamboat docked to the Wilson Stage at the riverfront.

Local 6 has been told that the boat drifted because of strong winds Thursday, causing it to pull a railing loose. That also broke off the rear corner pier post, causing major damage to the stage.

Crews will have to inspect the stage after the water goes down.

Paducah’s Riverfront Concert Series is held at Wilson Stage.
