“Eight more miles on the Erie Canal…”

Yes, the Erie Canal is the stuff of legend and song, so when the canal and music come together, well, it’s a beautiful thing. And that’s exactly what’s happening this weekend with the Lock 7-12 Canalfest. It’s all happening at various locations around Nippertown. And it’s free!

The fest is a wonderful, family-friendly event that includes water ski shows, fireworks displays, hayrides, boatrides, skydiving demonstrations, arts and crafts exhibits and lots more.
