DELPHOS — The 59th annual Delphos Canal Days is this weekend.

“It’s always the third weekend in September. We have people calling us in May and June asking when is the date, saying we want to make sure we can get there,” said Diane Sterling, event coordinator.

The committee has added two events for the younger crowd that they are hoping will take off.

“We have a Big Wheel race for the kids. We think that would be neat for the smaller children,” said Sterling. “ And we are doing a Pokemon Go game for the teenage kids. Saturday afternoon we are sending out lures for kids to collect as many as they can. We hope that goes over well.”

There is a change in the event’s bingo as well.

“We have a new bingo. We usually do basket bingo, but this year we are doing trips and tickets bingo. It is going over real good,” said Sterling.

D&D Putting and Amusements are providing the rides for the kids. Wrist bands are $15 in the evenings, and $12 during the afternoon on Saturday.
