'The Volunteer,' makes its way down a restored portion of the Miami and Erie Canal as it nears Ludwig Mill during Mill Fest last Sunday at Providence Metropark in Grand Rapids, Ohio. The event featured rides along the canal, a timeline of portable milling equipment from historical museums and private collections, steam and water-power demonstrations in the mill, blacksmithing, tinsmithing, woodcarving, as well as candle making.
Canawler Shannon Hughes addresses the crowd at the start of The Canal Experience tour.
