River Through Time 2013
Standing Strong: A River Through Time
Part of New York State’s Canal Celebration Weekend
August 10th | All Day
This NYS event celebrates “the history, culture and recreation of Canal Communities,” a mission to which our own efforts dovetail nicely. MVC plan to contribute to the festival by hosting the performances of local bands, an antique fair, and a chicken BBQ. In addition, we’ll be coordinating a series of open houses at various sites of interest around Montgomery County. If successful, we hope to make this an annual event!
