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.

Making the case for passenger rail service, during Railroad Days

NORTH CANAAN — An enthusiastic crowd gathered in an event room upstairs from the Great Falls Brewing Company on Saturday, July 17, for a presentation from the Train Campaign on restoring passenger service in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Railroad Days: Parade, carnival and fireworks extended to next weekend

NORTH CANAAN — Life doesn’t often offer second chances, but North Canaan will get a second chance this weekend to celebrate community and history at Railroad Days, with an extended run for the carnival and a new date for the parade and fireworks.
