Culture Shot

HOF City

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.

Time to party

The Massillon Museum once again is hosting its annual island party as a thank you to city residents. This year’s event is scheduled for 6 to 11 p.m. July 20 outside the museum and will feature a pig roast and entertainment from the Jackson High School Steel Drum Band and reggae group Carlos Jones and the P.L.U.S. Band.

A holiday tradition

For more than 30 years, the Players Guild Theatre has crafted a holiday tradition. “A Christmas Carol” will return to the stage December 1-17. The Players Guild has mounted a production of the Charles Dickens tale for about 36 years. And for the last 10 years or so, the theater has performed an original musical production of the show.
