Join us for the unveiling of "The Pull," a sculpture paying tribute to the towhorses that played a vital role in the history of the Welland Canals. Sculpted by Veronica and Edwin Dam de Nogales from Barcelona, Spain, and Floyd Elzinga from Beamsville, Ontario, this sculpture stands as a reminder of the sacrifices made by animal workers during the construction of the canals.
