The Tugboat Roundup is 20!

2019 promises to be a banner year for the Tugboat Roundup as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary. It’s also the 20th Roundup! Typically a 20th anniversary would fall on the 21st event, however the 2011 Tugboat Roundup was canceled in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. Although a small group of TBR enthusiasts gathered at Lock 2, along with a number of boats and their crews that were stranded due to damage to the canal system. There were three tugs, a very small parade, and plenty of congeniality. So whether or not that gathering can be counted as a Roundup continues to be debated.
