Canal Day is a lot of fun. You can sit back and enjoy music along the Schuylkill River and Canal. Watch or be apart of the running and canoe races or just try out some kayaks on the river. There will be 4 opening of Lock 60. Food and kids games will also be available. I have been enjoying Canal Day for the last 10 year and always enjoy this event.
