Do you remember that festival that changed your life? I don’t, either. That is probably why the Town of Canton is so into making their next $135,000 Labor Day festival “data-driven” and “strategic.” On the bright side, they’re cutting the celebration down from four to two days, and jettisoning the carnival rides. Now, if the tease said they were recruiting an international recording artist, rather than a national one, I might be more sympathetic.
