After closing the doors due to COVID 19 restrictions, the Canton Trade Days are looking to reopen the famous Northeast Texas stop sooner rather than later.
This week, the Canton City Council voted to allow the trade days to reopen for May 28-31.
“We will be absolutely 100 percent sure come Tuesday night’s council meeting,” Mayor Lou Ann Everett said after the motion to open First Monday passed.
Although the final decision will be determined during the next city council meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 19, they expect a clearer vision of what reopening First Monday will look like.
There is a possibility the event will not take place if county or state officials give reasons not to open. However, the council says, as of Wednesday, May 13, “everything is a go.”
