On opening weekend my wife and I visited the Bombay Sitar Restaurant at it's new location at 5111 Fulton Rd, Canton, Ohio. Same great food with a more spacious dining and buffet area. The decoration is simple with a very clean look. Now you have your choice of a table or booth, and large parties can be accommodated. What's not to like! If you are in the Canton area check them out, you will be glad you did. The best Indian restaurant in Akron/Canton area.
The last weekend in July is time for the Balloon Classic Invitational in North Canton, Ohio. A tradition since 1984, hot air balloons fill the sky for 2 days with the pilots participating in piloting skill competitions. On Friday evening there is a glow event that is a beautiful site to behold, which is great family entertainment. In addition to the hot air balloons there is the Jackson-Belden Food Fest, where you can enjoy your favorite carnival foods and the Friday "glow" event and the Saturday night Fireworks show. A great time for the entire family. All of this is the kickoff to the Football Hall of Fame festivities. Below are several pictures that I took at the 2010 hot air balloon event and a skydiver from the Saturday night events in July 2009.
Typically there are 75 balloons at the invitational with a great "glow" event after sunset Friday night. Relax on the hill side and enjoy the warm evening and glowing balloons. For more information about the invitational follow this link.
My wife and I enjoy going to our local winery during the summer months, and having our lunch or dinner outdoors on the Piazza. What a great way to enjoy our summer dining experience. Not long ago I used the Photosynth app on my iPhone to capture a 360 degree view of the Piazza and lake. The picture isn't perfect, but I was trying to avoid capturing people as they moved about and around me while I was taking the picture. The result isn't bad and it gives you a better perspective of the Piazza. If you know anything about me via my posts you know I like to have an establishing shot and GEO location as well. Photosynth is a great way for my readers to see the winery and get that establishing shot.
Enjoy a few more pictures or visit our Gervasi Gallery to see all of the pictures we have taken at Gervasi Vineyard. You can also see our photos on Google Earth.
If you find yourself in the Canton, Ohio area check out Gervasi Vineyard. A great place to stay if you are in town for the Pro Football Hall Of Fame!
