As the Canfield Fair winds down after its six-day run, thousands in the Shenango Valley are enjoying their own Labor Day tradition.
Buhl Day dates back more than a century.
The activities got underway with a 5-K race that started on East State Street in front of the Hermitage Hills Plaza. A parade was then held.
Both events ended in the Park named for industrialist Frank Buhl and his wife, Julia.
The tradition started in 1916 when Buhl gave his workers a day off to spend with family.
“It’s great because it brings the Valley together, and I actually think this is always the best thing about our area — is the park, ’cause it’s so beautiful, and it offers so many family-friendly things,” said Tara Steines, of Hermitage.
For those who missed the race and the parade, there will be plenty to see and do Monday afternoon in Buhl Park — with classic cars on display, an art show and musical entertainment and food.
Admission is free.
