CELEBRATING 200 YEARS
This year marks the beginning of the centennial celebration of America’s most grandest and influential man-made waterway, the Erie Canal first known as Clinton’s Ditch. To kick off honoring this extraordinary event that took only eight years to complete through 363 miles of wilderness, an epic drama is being brought to Central New York this summer just prior to the 2ooth anniversary of the first shovel of dirt dug in Rome, NY, on July 4, 1817.
This outdoor drama will be held in two locations in June 2017:
June 26 & 27, 2017
Hosted by: Devaney’s Riverside Grill, Weedsport, NY
June 29 & 30, 2017
Hosted by: Montezuma Historical Society at Giardina Park, Montezuma, NY
Written by: Anne Paris and Hugh Pratt
Produced & Directed by: Joni Lincoln
