Fair goers were able to enjoy  fried dough, snow cones, popcorn and lemonade lured hungry visitors. According to WKTV, there were also demonstrations and exhibits shown by multiple organizations throughout the entire event.

"Canal fest is pretty much our biggest fundraiser of the year and it goes towards a lot of projects we have later in the year, one big one is like the christmas party and just really any money that we want to donate to certain organizations like I was saying earlier like the humane society.", President Elect Kyle Cairns of Rome Rotary says.
