Canal Day 2008 is just around the corner

There are some changes this year so be prepared.

For those driving into town, parking is now $10 per car and includes air-conditioned bus transport to and from from the parking location.
Don't forget. If you are in town Friday night, don't leave your car parked on one of the town streets. There is no parking in town after midnight on Friday, June 27. At 4 a.m on Canal Day, towing starts. No joke. Your car will be towed.

New this year ... an admission donation of $5 per adult is being requested. I'm not sure how that is going to be handled yet, but I'll post it as soon as I know.

Boaters planning to come and moor in the basin ... TAKE NOTE .... The U.S. Coast Guard will be enforcing strict safety measures in the canal basin starting Tuesday, June 24 and running through Canal Day. A limited number of boats will be allowed in the basin.
