Canal Days is a much anticipated annual event, a celebration of the many reasons why the Canal Flats folks love living in the pleasant little community. They go all out every year, with events for every person, young and not-so-young. Everyone has a great time and the memories made can last a lifetime.
Canal Days is also a chance to put off the last vestiges of winter and embrace the coming summer, with all the things that the community has to offer its residents and visitors.
