Old Erie Canal Boat Float & Bash
Follow the Boat Float event on facebook
Chittenango Landing is hosting our second annual Old Erie Canal Boat Float on Saturday, June 16th. Last year’s inaugural event was incredibly successful and this year we expect it to be even bigger! The event itself is based around paddlers using kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, etc. to explore the canal from multiple entry points based off of mileage and difficulty. The Old Erie Canal Boat Float is FREE and signing up is not required, but we would love to know if you plan on paddling so that we can be ready for you. Register for the Old Erie Canal Boat Float. More details on times and locations for the Boat Float.
Join Chittenango Landing on June 16 from 10am-4pm for the FREE Boat Float Bash with music, food trucks and much more!

We would like to invite you to attend our event and to celebrate both the history and recreational opportunities on the Erie Canal! Boat Float Bash is made possible by the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor event sponsorship grant.
Chittenango Landing thrives as a volunteer based organization and because to this, we are constantly looking for donations in order to keep our museum alive. If you are not able to attend but would still like to make a contribution to our event, in-kind donations of items to be raffled off are also welcome.
