2,000 miles. 40 teams. 8 destinations.
That’s the premise of Fireball Run Adventurally, an exciting reality TV show that filmed at the National Canal Museum in September. Now in its 10th season, Fireball Run Adventurally celebrity competitors raced across New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut and Massachusetts to locate America’s most obscure places and rare historical artifacts.
In Easton, the 40 teams completed challenges in Centre Square, at the Sigal Museum and at the National Canal Museum. Museum & Archives Coordinator, Martha Capwell Fox assumed the task of creating unique challenges that competitors would not find anywhere else in the country. Together, the teams began by pulling the 48 ton Josiah White II canal boat and then ventured inside the National Canal Museum to hold the oldest Dixie Cup in our collection. In a whirlwind 2 hours, the teams found their way to Hugh Moore Park and completed two challenges that can only be found at the National Canal Museum.
We enjoyed hosting the teams and crew of Fireball Run Adventurally, and we look forward to viewing the Easton episode on Amazon Prime. Learn more about the show by visiting the Fireball Run Adventurally 10th Anniversary website.
