Peterborough Ribfest Fest July 8

We had all but given up on attending the Rib Fest in Peterborough.  After traveling through a few more locks, our sights were set on Peterborough and we made in time for the  Rib Fest, Music Fest and more.   First up, we got in line with friends to get a few plates of ribs. This is a short walk from our boats, and there must be half a dozen stands serving award winning ribs.

In addition to the ribs, we enjoy free music concerts all weekend, and attend a docktail party attended by about 30 loopers!

LOCK Peterborough

Knowing the next lock is just .5 mile up the road,  we walked over to see what its all about.  This lock consists of two large tubs that are counter weights.  As boats enter the tub at the top of the lock , it is lowered; at the same time the lower tub is raising up to the upper water level.   It is going to be a wild ride.
