Focus on Canton's first ever Canton Pigeon River Fest saw small crowds Saturday afternoon despite a good showing from vendors and the presence of a large crowd attending the Black Bears youth football games at Memorial Stadium.

The festival began at the Feed and Seed store and festival goers walked along the Canton Walking Trail with vendor tents on one side and the Pigeon River on the other, eventually making their way to the Canton Recreation Park where several food trucks provided a wide variety of food choices.

Live music was provided by Faith Under Fire, and the main attraction for the evening was a free concert by Band Of Oz.
