You're Invited to Canal Day Music & Craft Festival

This Saturday, August 21 The Canal Day Festival will be held in Wharton's Hugh Force Canal Park, 170 West Central Avenue from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

The Canal Day Festival is an old time country fair that celebrates the Morris Canal and the communities along its banks. The festival is now in its 34th year. Come to a day of free family fun featuring a juried craft show, designs, community services, food, educational events and 11 live bands. Hand picked crafters from around the region will display their beautiful offerings. Approximately 3000 people from around the region, from Connecticut, Pennsylvania and as far away as Texas, attended the festival in 2008 to celebrate this heritage and history.

This year's Festival will be larger than ever with the addition of a second performance area for acoustic venues. There will be something of interest for everyone to enjoy!

Learn about local history by taking a guided Morris Canal walking tour provided by the Canal Society of NJ. Experience life on Morris Canal first hand by travelling down the canal on a free mule drawn boat ride or prove your prowess by paddling a kayak. Take a pony or horse drawn wagon ride. The Wallaby Tails Traveling Zoo's demonstration of exotic animals will delight children of all ages. Many, many more activities for fun and learning are planned.

Optimal Family Chiropractic will provide foot and neck scans and provide
information about how many conditions can benefit from chiropractic care.

Come spend the day with us at Hugh Force Canal Park! There will be a fireworks display at Robert Street Park at 8:00 PM and as always admission is free. Please visit http://www.canalday.org/canalday.html for further information.
