Canal Fest kicked off Sunday marking its 37th year.  What exactly is Canal Fest ?

An eight day, event filled, outdoor festival along the banks of the Historic Erie Barge Canal in the Cities of North Tonawanda & Tonawanda.  An event that the whole family can enjoy!

My good friend and colleague Dale Mussen formerly of sister-station WYRK, (Dale just recently retired) is the Grand Marshall of this year's parade.

The two and one-half hour parade, one of the largest in New York State is TONIGHT, JULY 16 6:30 pm from Grove to Webster Streets proceeding Tonawanda to N. Tonawanda.
