Westport Marina to be part of annual Canal Splash

Westport Marina will be joining the Canal Splash celebration on Saturday, Aug. 10, by offering two Lake Champlain-related book signings and a lunch-time concert on the deck at The Galley Restaurant.

The Meter Maids will sing a cappella in four-part harmony to entertain Galley customers as they enjoy their lakeside lunch. The quartet from the Champlain Valley Sweet Adeline Chorus includes members Carla Brassard, Carole Harsh, Jennifer Scofield and chorus director Cherie LaDuke. You’ll recognize their songs as they serenade from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

In the Ship’s Store at Westport Marina, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thea Lewis will autograph her “Ghosts & Legends of Lake Champlain.” An excellent storyteller, Lewis finds ghosts whose stories tell our history, especially those where American, British, and French ghosts connect us to past wars.

From 1 to 3 p.m., James Arnosky will sign “Monster Hunt,” and “Shimmer and Splash.” In “Monster Hunt,” Arnosky explores various unique creatures including Champ and Nessie discussing what their habitat and food requirements might be. In “Shimmer and Splash,” Arnosky makes life under-the-sea an interesting and beautiful place for young readers to visit.

Be sure to visit Westport’s Lake Champlain waterfront to celebrate Canal Splash along with hundreds of others at locations along New York’s canals and connected lakes.
