Canfield Fair "Freebies"

Canfield Fair "freebies"

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio - If you add up games, food and entertainment a day at the fair can quickly put a dent in your wallet.

But, there are always the simple pleasures.  "A coloring book, markers, a pencil, and a bracelet," said young Cameron Mason of Salem, Ohio as he showed off the free items he had collected.

The fair "freebies" can be difficult for some fairgoers to pass up.

"We get a lot of free stuff, it seems like everybody is handing you something," said Shannon Svaboda of Southington, Ohio.

To some, the "freebies" are just a bunch of junk but, to others they're worth holding onto.  "Oh I keep it," said Pat Honen of Boardman, Ohio. "The pencils, the pads, all that stuff I use it so I'm very happy with what I get here."

Each year at the WFMJ/WBCB Tent, fair-goers can get a free tote bag.

And, on Wednesday our Print Partner the Vindicator passed out free newspapers.

Some vendors even get clever with their giveaways, Backs and Us, LLC. in Boardman offered free massages and spinal screenings.

Others offered a chance to win big by entering a raffle.

"Actually it's the kids they enjoy doing this, they enjoy going to each spot the very first day and then mom goes home and collects it all," said Lori Arfaras of Canfield. "And unfortunately, I do see a little bit but then I hate to say it ends up in the trash."

They're small tokens of appreciation, that are appreciated by some more than others.
