Hello,

My name is Dennis Scannell and I am with the organizational committee for the Seneca Falls Canal Fest. Last year we brought back the celebration of the AQUA FESTIVAL which was held in Seneca Falls back in the 1960?s and early 70?s and called it the ?Seneca Falls Canal Fest?. It was an overwhelming success with over 10,000 visitors and we are actively planning for this year?s event which will be held on July 7th, 8th, and 9th.

It is three days of fun with Amusement Rides, Fireworks, Duck Races, Live Music, Vendors, Arts & Crafts, Food, Boating, and more on both sides of the Seneca Falls Canal Harbor. Using the Seneca-Cayuga Barge Canal as well as Van Cleef Lake, we have focused this Fest to assist in the revival of our Canal and Downtown Corridor.

One of the primary events is the revitalization of the AQUACADE which was the central event from the 1960?s and 70?s. This unique event was a water based parade which was populated with floats and boats, that traveled through the Canal. Last year we rebranded and brought back this event as the ?AQUACADE Watercraft Parade?. For this initial event, we had over 30 watercraft participants ? from Kayaks to a Cigarette Speed Boat. Some were decorated, some promoted their organization or business while others just had fun floating in this celebration. It was a successful ?proof of concept? and we are looking forward to building upon this achievement.

I am reaching out to you for your thoughts, questions, ideas, and interest. We would be pleased and excited if the Old Boats Buffalo - Niagara Frontier Antique & Classic Boats Inc. and any of its members would like to participate in any way to help us make this the ?Greatest Show The Floats!? Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. We have already secured Corning Glassware?s ?Glass Barge? and are collaborating with the NY State Canal Corp and Taste of NY orgs as well as other local boating organizations.

Our Canal Harbor which is referred to by the local Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake Boaters as ?The Wall? has free water and electrical hook ups as well as phone & Internet services. Convenient shower and laundry facilities are also available. I look forward to hearing from you. It will be the place to be, so See Ya at the Fest!


Sincerely,

Dennis Scannell
