Ever wonder what the canal boatmen and their families, and the canal town residents did for fun? On Oct 9 (Oct 10, rain date), visit the Boatyard and find out. Canal life was hard, and they worked long hours, but the boatmen had very creative outlets for entertainm­ent: circus boats, excursion boats, library/ book boats, and theater boats— to name a few things. The Erie Canal and its lateral canals were also “conduits” of informatio­n— like informatio­n highways. Authors, mediums, clairvoyan­ts, musicians, storytelle­rs, and many creative people and performers traveled the canal to offer their services or entertain from town to town. Deirdre Sinnott, author of “The Third Mrs. Galway,” will be at the Laker boat to sign books. For more informatio­n please visit www.chittenang­
