– Bring the kids and old timey games and dress up in period costumes.
– Pause and listen – or dance! – to all genres of music, with buskers throughout the park all day.
– Don’t forget to check out all the wonderful local shops and eateries in our picturesque downtown — including Nature’s Storehouse, which will be offering FREE henna tattoos and special in-store deals!
Sunday we host the Remington 5k Fun Run/Walk, a journey through time as you discover the various sites where Frederic lived and played in Canton.
