Delphi Canal Days Festival this weekend

Delphi Canal Days Festival this weekend

After the Fourth of July holiday wraps up today, people will be able to find period costumes, history and boat rides in Delphi during a 1850s canal era festival Saturday and Sunday.

Annadell Lamb, who has been involved in the Canal Days festival since 1990, will conduct tours of the rooms in the Reed Case home. Case was the contractor for the Carroll County section of the Wabash and Erie Canal. Lamb, who said the Case house is one of the things she has been particularly interested in, said the home has period furnishing.

Lamb, who will be in period costume, thinks she will wear a long red, print dress and may wear an apron. She was raised in Delphi and is a board member of the Wabash and Erie Canal Association.

"It's an important part of our history in Indiana," Lamb said. "Building the canal opened up Indiana."

During the festival, there will be a quilt show in the Canal Center, where visitors can vote on their favorite quilt, a historic flag show in the Canal Center and rides on a replica canal boat will be offered at 11:30 a.m., 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. Saturday and 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets will be $7 for adults and $4 for children 17 and under.

There will also be live demonstrations in Pioneer Village, including blacksmithing, basket and broom making, leather work and more.

Visitors will also find several craft booths, bicycles for rent and trails to walk. There will also be live music both days.

Mary Crary, Wabash and Eerie Canal Association board member, said there will be something for all ages.

Crary, who has helped with the festival for 15 years, said it is also the 10th anniversary of the Interpretative Canal Center.

Board president Dan McCain has been helping with the event for years and said it seems to get bigger each year.
