Take a walk along the Cayuga County stretch of the Erie Canal from Centreport Aqueduct in Weedsport to Schasel Park in Port Byron, whet your appetite for a cold drink with a presentation from Cayuga Museum staff about the history of brewing in the County, and grab a complimentary beer from Lunkenheimer Craft Brewing while listening to live music from Wits End Unplugged from 2 to 4 p.m.

Registrations may be made online or at the Cayuga Museum table until 1:30 p.m. at Centreport Aqueduct in Brutus during the event.
