Canal Park will be transformed into a working village from the 1800's. It's all part of the annual Canal Days Festival. You can see everything from blacksmithing, paper making and basket weaving.

Attendees can also take a ride on the Wabash and Erie Canal and learn about its importance to the people living in the area.

Canal Vice President Gary Stanley said people are wowed when they see goods made by hand.

"Today, most people would ever think of going out and weaving their own cloth or building a barrel from scratch. It takes craftsmanship. It takes a lot of practice and the desire to do it, " Stanley said.

The Canal Days Festival is Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. and noon to 4:00 on Sunday. It's free except for the canal boat - There's a small fee involved there. There are also food vendors and new for this year a beer garden on Saturday.
