On Saturday, visitors packed the Augusta Canal Headgates in Martinez for an old-fashioned festival dubbed Summertime on the Canal. Festivities included eating contests, children’s games, entertainment, homemade churn-style ice cream and an antique car show.
Sandy Boner, the manager for the canal community center’s department, said she was surprised at the event’s turnout, stating that there were about 200 participants at 10:30 a.m.
I had no idea this was going on! I didn’t do a thing yesterday. I totally could have gone to that!
