  ‘Drive-In’ Fireworks Display On Tap At Canfield Fairgrounds Sat., July 4  
  June 25, 2020 Edition  
     When the Canfield Fair Board of Directors learned that the organization that typically hosts the popular Fourth of July Fireworks would not be able to do so this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Fair Board sprang into action to make sure that the community would not be without fireworks.
      The board has worked with several sponsors to schedule a fireworks display at the fairgrounds on the evening of Saturday, July 4 at 8:00 p.m.
      Canfield Fair Board President Ward Campbell said “Our community has experienced a few tough months so the board and I wanted to do everything we could to continue the tradition of Fourth of July fireworks at the fairgrounds.” The Canfield Fair/Mahoning County Agricultural Society is organizing the event but it is being underwritten with support by Cornerstone Electric, HD Davis CPAs, ‘Joe’ Dickey Electric, Less Contracting Inc., Horst Meat Packing and Bruno Miletta. The show is produced by Pyrotechnico, of New Castle, Pa. Cost will be $10 per car and details regarding entry times and gates will be announced. Contact the Fair office at 330-533-4107 for additional details.
      July 10-12 will see the popular Fair Food Extravaganza return with a new round of concessionaires for the drive-thru style event. Details on the food vendors and their menus will be announced in early July.
      “We saw over 3500 cars come through the gates during the last extravaganza so the demand is certainly there. It’s the least we can do, not only for the public, but for our concessionaires who have been deeply affected by the cancellations of many fairs and festivals this summer” said George Roman III, director in charge of concessions and entertainment. The event will run from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. all three days.
      “During both the Fireworks Show and the Fair Food Extravaganza, it is recommended that everyone follow best practices for social distancing and proper hygiene to help keep the community safe,” Campbell said.
