Music big draw for Canfield fireworks

CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – The Canfield Rotary decided to try something new this year for its annual fireworks display.

Live music is now part of the show. The festivities kicked off a 4 p.m. Saturday at the Canfield Fairgrounds.

Music started at 6 p.m. with Mahoning Valley artist J.D. Eicher performing live at the grandstand.

Then at 8 p.m., the Little River Ban took the stage.

The Little River Band is an Australian group that has sold more than 25 million records and has had 13 American Top 40 hits.

Organizers said they really had one big goal with Saturday’s performances.

“We have all the people that like to watch fireworks, but they are outside the fairgrounds,” said Canfield Rotary President Sam Boak. “We want to get them here to see the real activity of what is going on.”

All of the music for Saturday’s event was free. All folks had to do was pay $10 per car to park.
