The First Monday Trade Days scheduled for this weekend will carry on as planned despite surrounding tornado damage.

As a tornado passed through Canton Wednesday afternoon it left behind a trail of damage and debris in and around the area of the First Monday pavilions. Thursday marks the opening of another selling opportunity for area vendor and some were concerned the monthly event would be cancelled due to the cleanup efforts that are going on in the area. According to a Facebook post on the First Monday Trade Days page, vendors will be set up as they usually do on the first Monday of the month selling their goods, services and other treasures. "We are thankful for a forecast showing sunny skies the next three days," according to the post.
