    Gazebo Concerts

    by davecallahan Updated Aug 11, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From June to August, bands and singers volunteer to play in Kennelley Park on Thursday evenings (6pm-9pm). It is mostly local talent and some of the sound equipment is not that great. But usually the music is pretty good and if it is a warm night and you are in the area, you wouldn't waste your time if you stopped in and listened. It is free; bring your own chair or blanket; seating is by first-come-first-served.
    The music genre is folk, rock, jazz, pop.

    to get there:
    Kennelley Park is on Main Street
    take route 31F to route 250, go north on route 250 to the canal and there you are.

    Fairport Canal Days

    by davecallahan Updated Mar 22, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Like many of the other towns in the Rochester area that border on the Erie Canal, Fairport has set aside several days a year to celebrate the canal heritage.
    (see the website below for the exact schedule this year).

    Literally hundreds of local (and not-so-local) artists, painters, sculptors, jewelers, wood-workers, tin-smiths, et.al. gather in Fairport to sell their wares. The town shops and sidewalks and parking lots will be crowded with tents and booths where you can get your hearts content if you have the money to spend.

    Hungry? Thirsty? There will be 40 or so eateries represented at the event, with hot and cold food and drinks made just for you to buy. Firemen open-grilling chicken or Red Osier making signature roast beef sandwiches; hundreds of gallons of bottled water and Pepsi and Mountain Dew will flow.

    Entertainers, bands, drum corps, high school cheer leaders; parades with fire trucks and police cars; fireworks in the evening. And a fine time is had by all.

    Got some time and money left... then take a ride on the Erie Canal or join the canoe race for prizes and fame.

    COME ONE, come all, GO TO FAIRPORT and have a ball.
