Be “Irish for the Day by the Erie Canal” at our family event, Saturday, March 18, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Erie Canal Discovery Center. What was the life of a Canal worker like? Kids can find out as they pretend they are Irish workers from the earliest days of the Erie Canal.

We’ll enjoy crafts and activities combined with interactive Canal exhibits taking us back in time. Learn how the Canal was built from our movie and simulated boat trip, meet an Irish hoggee (a boy who led the mules), enjoy Irish songs and a sing-along.

Admission is free. The Discovery Center is located at 24 Church St. in Lockport. Call 439-0431 or 434-7433.
