Weekend Entertainment | Is It Fair to Call It That?

The Columbiana Street Fair likes to call itself “The State Fair of Street Fairs.” But, really, it’s more like the county fair of city fairs.

Or, maybe, it’s the Canfield Fair of Columbiana. No, wait – the Columbiana County Fair of Columbiana City.

Regardless of which slogan you prefer, the 136th annual Columbiana Street Fair opens this evening on Main Street in Columbiana. Hours are 5 to 10 p.m. today, 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and noon to 11 p.m. Saturday.

Also opening today – and similarly defying description – is Paranormal Cirque.

Shrouded in mystery and located in an ominous looking big top tent outside Southern Park Mall, Paranormal Cirque describes itself as an R-rated horror circus.

Shows are 7:30 p.m. today and Friday; 6:30, 9:30 and 11:30 p.m. Saturday; and 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets range from $20 to $60; click HERE.

No one under age 13 will be admitted. Guests ages 13 to 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

King’s X, the progressive hard rock band that long ago developed a cult-like following, will come to the Robins Theatre in Warren on Friday for an 8 p.m. concert. Click HERE.

Michael Franzese will be at Robins Theatre on Saturday to discuss his life. Franzese is the former mafia boss who got out of the life and lived to tell about it. And he does like to tell about it, having authored several acclaimed books readers find impossible to put down. His talk begins at 8 p.m. Click HERE.
