That looks like a flea market kind of set-up, cd. Canton OH (and Putnam CT, and Akron OH, and probably hundreds of other cities around the country and world) have their "First Whatever-days" on the city streets/shops and restaurants on the route. We've done both all three over the past half-dozen years. I like them best when the weather is nice and my feet aren't crabby. I find it funny that both Canton and Akron hold theirs all year long, whereas Putnam runs their events only in nicer weather - something like April through October. Wimpy New Englanders! They aren't like tenspeed, who will grill in a blizzard wearing cut-offs and flip-flops (or so I guess...).

Edit: It looks like Wadsworth OH also runs First Fridays. That's one of the cities we're considering if we ever move back to OH.

Yes it is a flea market, and crafts market, which is why it doesn't appeal to me. It has been around since the 1850s, and now covers about 100 acres, and in a good month, gets 100,000 visitors/shoppers.

I just thought it was interesting that Canton, OH and Canton, TX both hold the same kind of event.

If you're ever really bored, you can check to see if any of the other "Canton, USA" cities have these events, too.

There is actually a Cleveland, Texas. I used to have a lake house ten miles from it. It has a river running through it... that has never caught on fire.

Lots of rivers and other bodies of water were heavily polluted and caught on fire. The Cuyahoga catching on fire finally spurred the government to pass the Clean Waters Act and form the EPA.

You're welcome!

Tenspeed, I was looking forward to the "11 pipers piping" for the dinner thread today.


Tonight we finished off the last of the NYD dinner of black eye peas/ collard greens/ham, and the Mexican cornbread. I added some red chard to the pot and it was even better than before.

Or Aleppo pepper, Kayelle? If you were closer, I would make one for you. A regional pizza chain, Donato's, used to make a thin crust Hawaiian pizza with ham, pineapple, almond slices, snd a dusting of cinnamon. Sadly, no almonds in the house except for whole Smokehouse almonds! The small naan breads are a decent substitute.

I'd make one for you, too, Cheryl.
