Mid-September; Palmyra; it must be Canaltown Days. Palmyra, "the queen of the canal" hosts a long line of craft vendors who sell their wares from colorful tents. There is an art sale and auction right next to the flea market. After the 5K foot race there is a short parade of local officials and high school queens and girl scouts and firemen with local brass bands for noise.
There are food and soft drink vendors galore. And a great time is had by all.
Come join us. see the website below for exact time and dates.
