Northeast of Lafayette-West Lafayette is the town of Delphi, that boasts its impact on America's transportation. This town is home to the Wabash & Erie Canal Park, which hosts "Canal Days" every summer. This Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7, do not miss the annual celebration, with a nod to our nation's birthday...and the early American ingenuity realized by the creation of the Wabash & Erie Canal! Lots of good, old-fashioned fun for the whole family featuring food, music, activities and more!
On Saturday, July 6, the wolves at Wolf Park will be celebrating during the "Wolf Park's Annual Watermelon Party for the Wolves". Each wolf, fox and coyote will have his or her very own cold watermelon, stuffed with treats such as pig ears, cheese, and dog biscuits. Visitors are invited to watch as each animal enjoys their summery treat. This year the new gray fox kits, will also get to enjoy watermelons- their first ever! They will have an extra treat for the humans- Gibson's Shaved Ice will be serving flavored ice treats for just $1. Visitors and wolves can both cool off and enjoy their day.
