New Haven, Indiana—Do you have what it takes to be the next Face of the New Haven Canal Days Festival?

Due to the tremendous success of the inaugural Face of the New Haven Canal Days Festival in 2013, the New Haven Canal Days Festival Committee is once again looking for a great photo from a previous Canal Days festival to grace the fliers and website of the 2014 Canal Days festival. The winner of the inaugural 2013 Face of the New Haven Canal Days Festival was Nancy Reuille of New Haven; her photo featured grinning youngsters, Lucy Workman and Logan Reuille, on a midway ride in 2012. All residents of New Haven and past attendees of the festival are encouraged to participate.
