The 38th Annual Wharton Canal Day will be celebrated this year on August 24th.  For those who are not familiar with this event, it is a country fair held annually in the town of Wharton to celebrate the history of the Morris Canal.  The Morris Canal played a major role in the development of industry in the northwestern Morris County area.

Please see their website for additional information:

Beginning at 7:00 p.m. that evening they hold a fireworks display which runs until dark.  The sunset that evening is officially at 7:45 p.m.

Let's get together and get some fireworks shots this summer!!

We'll meet at the Robert Street Park in Wharton.  The park is in a residential area with much available street parking and St. Mary's Church is short distance away.  However, it may be congested due to the festival so be prepared to have to possibly walk a good distance to get to the park.
