Canal Day 2007

Every year since 1979 the town of Chesapeake City hosts Canal Day.  This is to celebrate the canal and towns history, and is a MAJOR fund raiser for the non-profit organizations in Chesapeake City, MD.

This event started as a family day event of crafters and antiquers with the local organizations (boy/girl scouts, civic association, churches, etc.) hosting a booth or table to raise some money for their organization and have a fun family day event in the process.

In 1976 there was a bi-centennial celebration.  Pat Ward and his wife headed that one up.  Nothing
happened again until 1979 when CCDCA Civic Association came up with the idea of an annual
celebration to help the local organizations raise money.  Dick and Leigh LeGates, Bob and Wendy
Biggs, Jane Foard, Carol and Larry Wolle were the organizers.  Dick LeGates was president of the
CCDCA at that time.  So the first actual 'official' Canal Day at Chesapeake City was 1979.

This Canal Day event has changed in recent years from it's initial goals and direction to something quite different than the town and residents had expected.

We took some aerial photographs of the "Canal Day" festivities to share with everyone in hopes that it will help the town leadership make this a better event for the town residents, town, organizations, and participants in the future by viewing this event from a different perspective.

The following are SOME of the photographs taken.  If you would like an 8"x10" glossy of ANY of these photographs, they are available for $10 each, which will go directly to the Union Hospital Breast Health Center at Union Hospital!!  Please contact eeboas@icacc.com.  Please purchase some prints, order by picture number!!
