See Schuylkill Canal Tonight, Lighted By Candles

MONT CLARE PA – An annual holiday luminaria presentation, which bathes Lock 60 and the Locktender’s House along the Schuylkill Canal in Mont Clare in glowing candlelight, will be held Saturday (Dec. 11, 2021) from 5-8 p.m., by the Schuylkill Canal Association. The event is free to attend and open to the public. Be forewarned: public parking at Lock 60, 400 Towpath Rd., is limited.

“Only a steady downpour of rain cancels the event,” organizers said.

The association’s event will be conducted outdoors aside the canal and on its towpath. The exterior of the Locktender’s House will be decorated for the season. Warm beverages and snacks will be available. So will gift bags for children, although Santa is unable to make an appearance. Holiday music will be provided by the string duo, Meadowlark.

Although no admission fee is charged, the association will gladly accept donations.
