Lift Bridge, Fairport, NY

Getting bored with the quiet Webster neighborhood,  we finally decide to explore a little bit about what is going on nearby. And lucky for us, there are indeed some events happening during the weekends: The annual festival for the Erie Canal, Fairport Canal Days! It is really a nice get-together for local artists, musician, and more importantly, it is a party for the local people to enjoy the great food and have fun. Along the main street, there are quite a few interesting shops with different artifacts being sold, pottery, jewelry, paintings, to name a few. And here comes the Lift Bridge, which connects the two sections of the main street on both sides of the canal, and like Tower Bridge in London, it can even be lifted when ships are coming!  Cool!
