Blogger's Note: This notification just in from the good folks at the Schuylkill Canal Association.
Anyone looking for something fun to do this summer should mark their calendars for June 30th, the date of this year’s Canal Day celebration/fundraiser, hosted by the Schuylkill Canal Association (SCA).
Young and old alike will find countless activities and events planned from morning to late afternoon, and food vendors make sure no one goes hungry, so plan to spend the day!
Visit Lock 60 and St. Michael’s Park in Mont Clare, Pa. for the SCA’s 31st Canal Day on Sunday, June 30, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Canal Day is the SCA’s biggest annual fundraiser, and the money raised goes toward our operating budget as we continue our stewardship of the Schuylkill Canal Park. Thanks to the help of numerous dedicated volunteers and sponsors, this event is now in its 31st year, and continues to be a success.
All are welcome to come out and enjoy a day of family-oriented fun along the Schuylkill Canal.
The day is packed with exciting activities such as storytellers, kids yoga, games and crafts, a horseshoe tournament, the Schuylkill River Trail Run/Denny Porrini Memorial Run, a canoe/kayak five-mile water trail race, jousting over the canal, live music and much more!
Attendees are also encouraged to visit the various vendors and flea market tables.
Admission is $5 per person; children 12 and under are FREE.
A courtesy shuttle will be available for those who need assistance getting around.
Sponsors for this community-wide fundraiser are still needed.
Depending on the level of sponsorship, you could get your name and logo listed on the back of the trail run t-shirt; in the Canal Day program booklet, which will end up in the hands of the anticipated 3,000 visitors; and on the website, as well as other lists displayed throughout the area that day.
We also still have room for crafters, vendors and flea marketers, and all businesses and non-profits are invited to participate in our business expo.
Spaces cost $25 for local businesses and are FREE for non-profits. Please contact us if you are interested or visit our website: www.schuylkillcanal.com for more information.
