At this time each year, the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Enshrinement Festival brings big names to a small town. Canton is readying for yellow jackets, speeches, an NFL game and lots of fans. We recently sent a writer to the eastern Ohio community to report on the Hall and capture images for an everyfan's photo album. See the snapshots below, then read the accompanying feature to hear the call of Canton.
