The 34th Annual Canal Celebration in Little Falls is a go for August 9th through the 15th with some changes, and applications are still being accepted.
Between now and July 10th, program registration is still ongoing and, “We’ll see what we end up with on July 10th, but we’re confident that we’ll have a good representation of programs so that families can enjoy Canal Celebration again,” stated Tony DeLuca.
Events that have been confirmed are the car show on Sunday in Burke Park, adult & youth fishing derbies, the Freedom Run, the Southside walking tour, a cemetery tour, and some dedications by the Little Falls Historical Society.
“Chicks Along the Canal, which is arts and crafts will again be at Sterzinar Park and will be modified a bit, becoming a one-day event with a limited number of vendors so that they can spread out and socially distance,” said DeLuca.
He said that other events that are still in the planning process are Local Fresh Thursdays, which will be enhanced for that week.
Class reunions are still going to happen as, “People are planning on coming back during the typical Canal Celebration times, so we’re hopeful,” DeLuca said.
Clubs and organizations are also responding and getting their plans together as well, including the Elks Club, American Legion, and Polish Club. “They usually do bands and have some kind of BBQ or food.”
A new event on the schedule is a Vintage Baseball Game at Veterans Park. “This was something that was going to be new last year and of course we couldn’t do it. This year, we’re hoping to have the Little Falls Vintage Club come back on that Saturday of Canal Celebration to host the game.”
