Delaware Canal Festival in Historic Bristol Borough

Friends of Delaware Canal Locktender's House

Jefferson Avenue Bristol PA
  • Friday June 22nd 2012

Decorated Boat Parade, Concert, and Illuminated Wish Boat Float at the Bristol Borough Lagoon Park. Last year's Decorated Boat Parades in Bristol and Yardley were all-out hits. What fun and creativity! Everyone from up, down, and all around the Canal is invited to participate in this year's Parades - either in Bristol or Yardley or, better yet, in both.

If you have a canoe, kayak, or rowboat, transform it into a floating wonder and show it off in the parades. Individuals, families, neighborhoods, businesses, and organizations are encouraged to enter. Don't worry about time, effort, or quality. Some of the best boats were put together in the blink of an eye, and all were loved by the spectators.

Cash prizes will be awarded for the most beautiful, humorous, imaginative, colorful, and "Typical of the Canal" entries, as well as Judges' Choice and "Best of Parade." All entries will receive commemorative rosette ribbons. For an entry form call 215-862-2021, e-mail, or visit

Entry forms for either the Bristol Parade or Yardley Parade or both can be acquired by calling 215-862-2021 or clicking here for Yardley or clicking here for Bristol Borough.
