Everyone is invited to join Cleveland Metroparks Voyageurs on
Saturday, October 2 along the Ohio & Erie Canal in Ohio &
Erie Canal Reservation for the Exploration Station: Voyageur
Encampment Along the CanalWay.
The day's experience takes place from 11 a.m. to
3 p.m., as Cleveland Metroparks French Canadian Voyageurs take a
day of rest from paddling and will be camped out along the Ohio
& Erie Canal. Typically, the Voyageurs are taking
visitors out on the water in the Voyageur Canoe, but they don't
need to be on the water to hear stories, sing songs and play
games. All are welcome to come down to the canal below
CanalWayCenter and try some voyageur food, dance to the fiddle, and
hear stories from the Fur Trade era.
CanalWayCenter is located on Whittlesey Way, off
the East 49th Street entrance of Ohio & Erie Canal
Reservation, between Grant Avenue and Canal Road in
CuyahogaHeights. Follow the signs down the trail to the encampment
by the canal.
For more information, call 216-206-1000.
