Big plans are underway for the Canfield Fair.
It was media day on Tuesday, and board members were anxious to announce what’s in store.
The big news right now is a deal with a new amusement ride company.
The Canfield Fair is bringing in Florida-based Reithhoffer Shows.
Board President Dave Dickey said everyone will be surprised when they come to the fair this year.
“Nobody’s seen these rides in Ohio. We are very excited about them. They are Cedar Point-quality rides, so it’s going to be very exciting,” Dickey said.
For 30 years, the fair has gotten rides from the Bates family, who retired after last year.
Also on tap this year are the shows you’d expect, like the demolition derby, tractor pull and exhibits.
And of course, Toby Keith is the headliner in the grandstand. Already 6,000 tickets have been sold for the show.
