Cannons sound and bagpipes lament


NORTH CANAAN — At 8:46 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 11, a cannon boomed and bagpipe music began at the Church of St. Joseph on Route 44. 

It was part of a ceremony remembering the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

So much to celebrate!

The rain stopped, just for a day, just long enough for the organizers of North Canaan’s annual Railroad Days celebration to end the 2021 festivities with a parade and a bang (literally, as fireworks were set off at dusk) on July 24.

Railroad Days carnival feels a bit like a water park

NORTH CANAAN — It’s been an extremely wet Railroad Days, but that doesn’t seem to have dampened the enthusiasm of visitors who have been coming out for store events and for the carnival anytime there’s been even a bit of sun.
