CANTON, OHIO (June 27, 2011) – The Canton Development Partnership is pleased to announce an exciting FREE addition to the downtown Canton event lineup. The BRAND NEW 4th Street Summer Concert is slated for Friday, July 8th, from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at the intersection of Fourth Street and Cleveland Ave. NW.
Kicking off the celebration, the Budweiser Clydesdales will arrive in style on the downtown green space, at Market Ave. N. and Fourth St. NW. The Budweiser Clydesdales will romp around downtown at 5:30 p.m., delivering cases of Budweiser to local restaurants and bars. The Budweiser Clydesdales have a unique history and their incredible stature is impressive. They travel in style aboard custom designed tractor-trailers and are hitched to a turn-of-the-century wagon. The whole ensemble is completed by a Dalmatian that perches atop the wagon.
The 4th Street Concert starts hopping at 6:30 p.m. with the Walt Wise One Man Band.

Headlining the night is Captain Fantastic with the music of Elton John at 8:30 p.m. Take a journey with the Rocketman! Captain Fantastic, the premier Elton John Tribute Show, will dazzle you with an amazing musical extravaganza!
