They call it the "Canaliversary.' It's been 100 years since a private developer conducted the grand opening of the canal as a toll waterway. For the past several days, a celebration has been ongoing along the canal's banks. Locals and tourists alike have been visiting tall ships and watching boat parades. And it all culminated yesterday with the official anniversary celebration, which included speeches, a tugboat parade and a fireworks display from one of the canal's three bridges.
