For two weeks this summer, hundreds of thousands of people will celebrate some of the greatest players in the history of football. The annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival begins July 22 and runs through August 6, with 17 major events scheduled throughout Stark County.
You need a good one to make the most of festival time. Seven-hundred thousand people are expected for this year’s 45th running of The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival, honoring Fred Dean, Darrell Green, Art Monk, Emmitt Thomas, Andre Tippett and Gary Zimmerman. That’s almost 10 times the size of Canton.
