Canal day is an old-time country fair that celebrates the Morris Canal, and its technological innovations that contributed to the industrial revolution and the development of Northern NJ. Learn local history. Come and enjoy free kayak rides, and narrated boat tours on the canal, 10 bands performing on two stages, animal and old western cowboy shows, historical demonstrations, as well as 150 fine art and craft vendors. Step back in time while visiting a medieval tent village with sword fighting, axe throwing and 16th century period craft demonstrations. Visit two civil war re-enactments with small weapons and cannon firing demonstrations. End the day with a fabulous fireworks display. Admission is free. Off-street parking is available for $5.00.
