New Haven Canal Days Kicks Off

The summer festival season kicks off out in New Haven for the start of Canal Days.
The summer festival season kicks off out in New Haven for the start of Canal Days.  WFFT stopped by as they were setting up.

Organizers say it brings back many memories of the favorites from last year.  Faith and Family Night, the New Haven's Got Talent competition, and the Bulldog Beauty Pageant.

Canal Days is now in its 40th year and Festival President Jon Stauffer says that's what makes this year special.

"A lot of people consider Canal Days kind of a homecoming.  Everybody who's ever lived in New Haven or grown up in New Haven, they always think, Canal Days, school's out, kicking off the summer, we're going to go down to Canal Days and have a great time."

Over 20,000 people attended Canal Days last year.  New for this year is extra rides and more food options.
