Summertime fun is right in your own backyard with the annual North Canton Jaycee Fair. This yearly festival promises fun and entertainment for the whole family and includes everything from rides, games, food vendors and a gaming tent (for those 18+). The fair runs Monday, June 10 through Saturday, June 15 from 6 to 11 p.m. each evening and until midnight Friday and Saturday. All activities take place in the parking lot adjacent to Memorial Stadium across from Hoover High School and Dogwood Pool along Seventh Street Northeast. Parking and admission into the fair are free.
Bates Bros. Amusements will provide rides and games, and more than 30 vendors will be on hand. The gaming tent will open at 7 p.m. each evening beginning Tuesday, June 11. Featured games include Texas hold ’em, blackjack, chuck-a-luck, and a horse-race wheel.
Monday evening, June 10, will be family night in the tent. Instead of running the card games, we’ll have several free games and activities for children. The queen and her court from the Barberton Area Jaycees Cherry Blossom Festival along with the Canton Charge girls will visit. A photo booth will also be available. Fair goers will have the opportunity to buy tickets for several raffle baskets all week long. The drawing will take place Saturday evening.
