Hot weather plagues Canfield Fair


CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) — The hot weather on Saturday left people struggling to stay cool at the Canfield Fair.

Our meteorologists have been warning all week that it’s important to drink plenty of water and protect oneself from heat exhaustion when spending much time outside.

Red Cross organizers with the fair said that message came through loud and clear.

“We have seen some heat come in, but people have by and large been educated by keeping hydrated so not as many as we had feared with the heat. We’ve also had a nice breeze out at the Canfield Fair today,” said Red Cross Event Coordinator Alan Scannell.

The health building is air conditioned, so those concerned about overheating were able to stop by there to cool off and get hydrated.

There is also trained medical staff available if things turn more serious.
