Union 10 – Canal Anniversary.

On the weekend of 24-26 September 2010, approximately 60 vessels made the journey from Edinburgh Quay to Falkirk Wheel, to celebrate 10 years since the Union Canal re-opened.

The flotilla comprised narrowboats in all their varied decorations, many with additional festoons for the occasion, some other cruisers and some Edwardian steam launches.
