Canal boat season begins Saturday

DELPHI — The Wabash and Erie Canal Association’s canal boat season begins from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Wabash & Erie Canal Park, 1030 N. Washington St., Delphi. It kicks off with the annual Transportation Festival.

The canal boat “Delphi” will pull up to the dock along the old Wabash & Erie Canal to begin taking passengers on a narrated cruise beginning at 11:30 a.m., and running through the day with hourly rides.

Along with boat rides, the park will open up for the Transportation Festival with entertainment, ice cream, food and crafters set up in historic cabins in the Pioneer Village.

Visitors may also check out the newly restored Gray Bridge.

As part of the festival, the Delphi Airport has plans as well for the day. A pancake and sausage breakfast will be served from 7 to 11 a.m. Cost is $5 for adults, free for kids under 10 — along with activities that include airplane rides, aircraft displays, sport parachute operations and aircraft building demonstrations that will keep visitors busy.

From the airport, visitors can take a free trolley ride to Canal Park and back between 9:45 a.m. and noon to enjoy the fun at both locations.

Back at the canal, members of the Studebaker Club in Indianapolis will make an appearance, as will Ron Marchand with the Thunderbird Car Club from noon until 1 p.m. during their tour of Carroll County.

Musical entertainment will be provided by the Banjo Nutz during the morning hours, and Don Roberson in the afternoon.

Demonstrations of sewing, crocheting, hair decorations, and potpourri will also take place in several cabins throughout the park.

Transportation Festival/opening day events will begin at the park at 10 a.m. and run through 4 p.m.

From Saturday through mid-October, the “Delphi” will offer rides on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
