Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival gets underway in Canton

The 2012 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement festivities are in full swing in Canton.

One popular event kicks off Wednesday night.

The Rib Burnoff at the Stark County Fairgrounds opens tonight at 7:30 p.m.

The three-day feast is not just about food.  There's plenty of entertainment for the kids, as well as concerts featuring the Gin Blossoms tonight, Jason Michael Carroll Thursday and Saving Abel Friday.

Also, August 1, August 2 and August 3 volunteers will be on hand serving adult beverages for a grand Stand Against Hunger.

In turn for their services, donations will be accepted with proceeds going to feed  hundreds of local, hungry families in need.

The events culminate with the Enshrinement ceremony on Saturday.
