• the annual canal day

Dave is Phoenixville’s Canal Jousting Champion!

This past Sunday the Manor of Hope participated in the Schuylkill Canal Association’s 37th annual Canal Day. 


The annual event features family friendly activities designed to build community and celebrate the beautiful canal space located in Phoenixville.  Funds generated through the event support cleaning and maintaining the many public trails and waterways.


The canal is regular destination for the Manor of Hope community.  It’s a place where our guys frequently run, fish, bike and kayak.
Canal Day ends each year with a jousting competition in front of Lock 60. 
This year it was the Manor’s own Dave who survived the intense competition and came out victorious!
He will be excited to defend the title at next years event.
