Celebrate Fall at the Johnston Farm
PIQUA – Enjoy the fall foliage and beauty of the Miami and Erie Canal during a visit to Celebrate Fall at the Johnston Farm from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7 at Johnston Farm & Indian Agency in Piqua.
There will be two canal boat rides aboard the General Harrison of Piqua; one at 1 p.m. that will travel north to Lock 8 and return to the landing. The second ride at 2:30 p.m. will travel the entire length of the park’s section of the canal to give passengers an idea of what canawlers saw in 1845 as they moved across western Ohio by canal boat. For those visitors who prefer to keep their feet on dry land, there will be a hayride at 4 p.m.
There will also be a variety of activities and demonstrations at the home of John Johnston, as well as a tour of the home. Be sure to include a visit to the Historic Indian and Canal Museum. Regular site admission applies, which is $9 for adults; $8 for seniors and AAA; $4 for students 6-12; and free for those 5 and under. For details, visit www.johnstonfarmohio.com.
