Canfield, Ohio is a small town just 15 miles from Youngstown in distance, but worlds away in culture. It is the quintessential small town America, complete with a town green. Each July 4th the parade goes past the green.
The parade is nice enough, but I will take the Doo Dah parade any day.
The Canfield Fairgrounds often has car shows, and this year was no different. Better than most county fairgrounds, Canfield’s has numerous permanent buildings and trees, making for a nicer venue for the show.
The Youngstown area hosted a series of bike races in July, 2009 called the Tour of the Valley. We were able to see two events, one in Canfield and the other in downtown Youngstown. While quite small, it was at least entertaining.
