The chamber is asking those who attended this year to provide feedback through a survey at The survey, which takes about three minutes to complete, will be be online through Aug. 27.

According to a statement, "the Lockport Chamber of Commerce is seeking feedback from our residents, the local business community and attendees of Old Canal Days. As we remain dedicated to helping our businesses and community thrive through awareness and creating public events to enhance those interactions, the input we receive from the community will help us make the necessary adjustments to make Old Canal Days an even bigger and better event in the future."
